Nikki Haley campaign launches ‘Women for Nikki’ ahead of Iowa campaign stops

Nikki Haley, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and South Carolina governor, announced the launch of her Women for Nikki campaign on Thursday, ahead of her upcoming Iowa campaign stops.

The Women for Nikki initiative seeks to engage and empower women across the state of Iowa to support Haley’s presidential bid. The campaign will be engaging with women through digital outreach and in-person events, and will also provide opportunities for women to learn more about Haley’s policy positions and ideas.

“I’m proud to announce the launch of Women for Nikki,” said Haley in a statement. “Women are the majority of voters in this country and they have the power to shape our future. I’m committed to engaging and empowering women across Iowa to join our campaign and be a part of our movement.”

Haley will be in Iowa this weekend for a series of campaign stops, including visits to Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, and Dubuque. During her visit, Haley will be visiting with women’s groups and speaking to local leaders.

“I look forward to meeting with women in Iowa and hearing more about the issues they care about,” said Haley. “I believe that the best way to bring about real change in our country is to listen to the voices of the people.”

The Women for Nikki campaign is a part of Haley’s broader strategy to engage and empower women in the 2020 election. As governor of South Carolina, Haley was a vocal advocate for issues like equal pay, paid family leave, and workplace protections.

Haley is the latest Republican presidential candidate to launch a women’s initiative. Former U.S. Senator and current presidential candidate, Martha McSally, launched her Women for Martha campaign earlier this week. The Women for Martha campaign is focused on connecting with and empowering women in the early primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

The Women for Nikki and Women for Martha initiatives are part of a larger effort to engage and empower women in the 2020 election. As more women enter the political arena, the campaigns are working to ensure that women’s voices are heard and that their issues are addressed.
