Two prominent Republicans from the Palmetto State are generating new interest in their potential plans for 2024 Presidential campaigns. In June, South Carolina’s former governor Nikki Haley and junior Senator Tim Scott will visit Iowa, home to one of the nation’s earliest Republican Presidential Primaries, the Iowa Caucus.
Scott is scheduled to speak at a regional reception along with Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst on June 9.
Haley, who also served as United Nations Ambassador in the Trump administration, will headline Iowa Congressman Randy Feenstra’s annual Family Picnic fundraiser June 30 in Sioux Center. The Republican Party of Iowa previously announced she would speak at its June 29 regional reception in Dubuque.
Feenstra told the Des Moines Register why he’s excited to welcome Haley to the Hawkeye state.
Haley was the keynote speaker at the Republican Party of Iowa’s annual Lincoln Dinner in West Des Moines last year. Spokesmen for Scott and Haley declined to comment on the upcoming Iowa trips, but Haley released a statement regarding her support for Feenstra.
“Randy Feenstra is a bold, conservative voice for rural America and hardworking Iowa families,” Haley said in a statement. “Since day one, he’s delivered on his promises to uplift farmers and small business owners, and punch back against Pelosi’s socialist agenda. I’m proud to call Randy a friend and can’t wait to see everyone at the Feenstra Family picnic this June!”
