Biden’s play for Haley voters is on—and he’s getting help from every direction

Biden’s play for Haley voters is on—and he’s getting help from every direction

When Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley ended her long-shot 2024 bid against Donald Trump on Wednesday, she explicitly called on the GOP front-runner to work “to earn the votes of those in our party and beyond it who did not support him.”

“At its best, politics is about bringing people into your cause, not turning them away,” Haley said.

By not endorsing Donald Trump, at least for now, Haley left Biden an opening to her voters, and he immediately took it.

“Donald Trump made it clear he doesn’t want Nikki Haley’s supporters,” Biden said in a statement. “I want to be clear: There is a place for them in my campaign.”

While Biden admitted that he and Haley supporters had areas of disagreement, he emphasized their shared values. 

“On the fundamental issues of preserving American democracy, on standing up for the rule of law, on treating each other with decency and dignity and respect, on preserving NATO and standing up to America’s adversaries, I hope and believe we can find common ground,” Biden wrote.
