Koch network says it will stop funding Nikki Haley's presidential bid

Bye, bye Nikki.

[www.aol.com]

The political network financed largely by billionaire Charles Koch announced Sunday that it will no longer spend funds to support Nikki Haley's presidential bid.

Former President Donald Trump on Saturday swept to victory over Haley in South Carolina, her home state, where she once served as governor.

In an email obtained by NBC News, which was confirmed by two sources who received it, Americans for Prosperity Action said that following Haley’s loss in South Carolina, the group no longer believes it can make a meaningful difference for her in the race, senior adviser Emily Seidel said. Instead, the group will focus its resources down the ballot on House and Senate races.

“She has made it clear that she will continue to fight and we wholeheartedly support her in this effort,” Seidel said. “But given the challenges in the primary states ahead, we don’t believe any outside group can make a material difference to widen her path to victory.”

Politico first reported the decision. A representative for AFP did not respond to a request for comment.

The move is a blow to Haley as she vows to continue against Trump, who beat her by about 20 percentage points Saturday and captured all but three delegates.

AFP provided crucial support to Haley on the ground, mobilizing its vast network of political activists to help get the vote out for her in early states. The group also poured money into advertising, hoping to fuel her rise. It spent more than $31 million boosting Haley in the race, according to Federal Election Commission data.

These numbers are outrageous. Campaigns need to be cut real short, like in Europe, it's all irritating anyhow.

Sure.

Let's do that just as soon as we get rid of the two-party system and the electoral college.

Like in Europe.

We have our way of doing things. No other place is better than the United States of America. They only "get" to vote cuz we saved their sorry butts. That said...

Nikki never had a realistic chance to win anything. She knew that and that’s the point. We should be quiet and watch.

If she continues to sway large swaths of deplorables away from Trump for November we should be satisfied with that.
