I doubt, though, that this is about a statewide run. It’s about running for president in 2024.
She was living in New York City. I don’t think she can run as a southern conservative when she’s living in New York. It’s not easy to run as any kind of conservative if you’ve abandoned South Carolina and embraced New York City.
If you’re from New York City, not much you can do about that, so it’s different. Obviously, it worked out well for someone.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is moving back to her native South Carolina, re-establishing a home base and also fueling speculation that a return to politics is next on her to-do list.
The 47-year-old former South Carolina governor, who left office in 2017 to join the Trump administration, closed Friday on a home on Kiawah Island, according to Alex Malloy, a spokeswoman for Kiawah Island Real Estate, which operates on the tony golf community near Charleston.
Haley’s office confirmed the purchase, saying the family would be splitting time between South Carolina and New York until their son graduates from high school next spring.
“South Carolina has always been home for the Haleys, and they couldn’t be more excited to return back to their family and friends in the Palmetto State,” said Haley spokeswoman Chaney Denton.
