Republican party frontrunner Donald J. Trump’s campaign is allegedly fundraising over Koch network’s throwing its support behind former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley, the media’s pick for the 2024 nomination.
On Tuesday, Americans for Prosperity Action, the group backed by billionaire Charles Koch, the surviving member of the Koch Brothers, said that it was endorsing Haley, the old-guard GOP establishment’s designated Trump slayer despite the potential that her candidacy would serve to alienate a large chunk of the party’s base and swing the election to Joe Biden.
.@NikkiHaley represents a new generation of conservative leaders who will solve the tough problems and lead our country forward.
Her positive vision for America is what we desperately need.

“AFP Action is proud to throw our full support behind Nikki Haley, who offers America the opportunity to turn the page on the current political era, to win the Republican primary and defeat Joe Biden next November,” the group said in a statement.
“She has what it takes to lead a policy agenda to take on our nation’s biggest challenges and help ensure our country’s best days are ahead. With the grassroots and data capability we bring to bear in this race, no other organization is better equipped to help her do it,” AFP Action proclaimed.
“For our country to move past the current political situation – we’ve got to turn the page on the past several years,” the statement reads. We believe Nikki Haley can help to write that new chapter for our country, lead with an inspiring vision for the future, and win in 2024. We will be doing everything we can to help her do that.”
In an appeal to supporters reported by left-leaning website Mediaite, Team Trump said, “a corrupt network of globalist RINO donors announced they’re going to spend TENS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS to prop up a puppet GOP candidate to try and defeat us in the primary,” the email says. “Voting begins in only 48 DAYS – and these RINO backstabbers are now going to launch a last-minute vicious assault against us in the early primary states.”
“Every dollar these RINOs spend against us is a dollar given straight to Crooked Joe Biden. The truth is: they know that and they simply do not care. . .,” the email reportedly said. “Because, at the end of the day, they’d rather see Crooked Joe in the White House than a political outsider who puts the people of our country FIRST.”
“When BOTH sides of the Washington political machine are out to stop us, I know that we are standing on the right side of history,” the email reportedly said, playing to the populist sentiment of Trump’s devoutly loyal base who see the rotten system in its entirety as the greatest threat to America.
“I’m honored to have the support of @AFPAction, including its millions of grassroots members all across the country,” Haley wrote on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. “This election is a choice between freedom & socialism, individual liberty & big government, fiscal responsibility & spiraling debt. We have a country to save.”

“The 2024 election is not just about transferring power from one party to another. It’s about bulldozing the corrupt and crooked political system in order to restore power to its only rightful place – with YOU, the American people,” Team Trump reportedly said in the email.
