Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley announced the suspension of her 2024 presidential campaign on Wednesday following a dominant Super Tuesday performance by former President Donald Trump’s campaign.

During a Wednesday morning speech, Haley announced the official suspension of her 2024 presidential campaign; however, the former U.N. ambassador for Trump’s administration did not immediately endorse the former president.

“I am filled with the gratitude for the outpouring of support we’ve received from all across our great country, but the time has now come to suspend my campaign,” Haley stated. “I said I wanted Americans to have their voices heard; I have done that. I have no regrets.”

During her speech, Haley acknowledged that the former president will now “in all likelihood” be the Republican Party’s nominee. She added, “It is now up to Donald Trump to earn the votes of those in our party and beyond it who did not support him, and I hope he does that.”

While Haley did not endorse Trump during Wednesday’s speech, she called for unity as the country moves forward. “Our country is too precious to let our differences divide us,” she said.

The suspension of Haley’s campaign comes after the former South Carolina governor only won one of 15 presidential primary contests on Tuesday, according to Fox News. While Haley was able to win the state of Vermont, Trump dominated each of the other 14 primary contests.

Prior to the suspension of Haley’s campaign, Olivia Perez-Cubas, a Haley spokeswoman, released a statement Tuesday regarding the Republican primary race. “Today, in state after state, there remains a large block of Republican primary voters who are expressing deep concerns about Donald Trump,” Perez Cubas said. “That is not the unity our party needs for success.”

During a “Fox and Friends” interview Tuesday morning ahead of the Super Tuesday primary elections, Haley addressed widespread calls from Republican leaders to drop out of the race, saying, “As much as everybody wants to go and push me out, I’m not ready to get out yet. I’m still sitting there fighting for the people that want a voice.”

Despite losing to Trump in every Super Tuesday contest except Vermont, the Haley campaign released a statement Tuesday obtained by Fox News, celebrating the support Haley’s campaign received from “millions of Americans” who voted in the Super Tuesday primary elections. Haley’s campaign noted that the former South Carolina governor’s win in Vermont made her the first woman in the Republican Party to “win two presidential primary contests.”
