Skip to comments.Haley-Pence rivalry heats up as GOP weighs post-Trump future
Posted on 08/24/2019 12:16:04 PM PDT by Hojczyk
At a time when Republicans are starting to contemplate what their party will look like after Donald Trump leaves office, a rivalry has developed between the two politicians who cut markedly different profiles and signs of strain are bubbling to the surface.
The Pence team has recently asked senior Republicans for updates on Haleys outreach to donors. And with Haley embarking on a national fundraising tour and promoting a new outside political group, top Pence advisers blame her for persistent rumors that she will replace him on the Trump's ticket in 2020. Tensions flared after Haley chose not to publicly repudiate a Wall Street Journal column in June urging Trump to put her on the ticket.
Earlier this month, Haley took a swipe at Trump after his criticism of Baltimore and its black congressman, Elijah Cummings. This is so unnecessary, she wrote on Twitter, adding the eyeroll emoji. White House counselor and former Pence pollster Kellyanne Conway then fired back: THIS is so unnecessary. Trump-PENCE2020, Conway wrote of Haleys tweet.

Cotton or some outsider for 2024....with no baggage.
DeSantis, Pence, etc. have baggage.
We need someone like Trump in 2024...I’m afraid we will get another George Bush..
Reagans biggest mistake...
Anyone know of sites similar tp Free Republic???..I keep getting banned for posting violations..but they never tell what they are..
I will probably just look at the posts from here on..
Can we get through 2020 first!?!! :)
Cause without the 2020 win, this article won’t mean all that much.
Ixnay on both. Too weak.
Nice try pollution-co
Politco, begun by Hilary lovers after she was thwarted by Obamas primary victory in 2008, should have no credibility when discussing Republican politics. They are always working with the evildoers in the Democrat coven to sow discord among Republicans.
No Nikki Haley!
I WILL NOT vote for her for ANYTHING!
You are right there. If we do not get past 2020, we don’t have to worry about 2024. If we do not get past 2020 it is all over but the crying.
No, please Trump, not a woman who tend to be weak and equivocal and will no way stand up to the personal attacks of the Left, like Palin as good as she was.
Get someone to replace Pence in 2020 who is
- smart and an outsider
- loves freedom and America and is willing to fight to restore both
- ready, willing, and able to fully engage in whatever it takes to restore our Free Constitutional Republic
- unafraid of the Left and, like Trump, confident and actually gets up every morning looking forward to the fray
- ready, willing, and able to begin dismantle the $3 trillion+ unconstitutional portion of the federal govt.
- ready, willing, and able to begin challenging the states to become sovereign and financially independent from the feds - even cutting off federal funding to make states financially independent and freer.
Everyone has baggage.
DeSantis would be great, he sides with the citizens and the rule of law.
Constitutionally speaking, not that it matters to so many, is Nikki even eligible, per the Constitution to hold the office of president? Meaning, were her parents US citizens when she was born on US soil?
Vying to be the next Yeb!?
Should be a Gov. The Texas fella I’d think. Bevin should succeed McTurtle and Ducey will need to take on one of the 2 soon to be rat senators in Az.
The last part is horrifically true.
And not only do we need Trump to win.
We need him to win but we need him to groom Pence.
I like him but he didn’t handle that whole Christian Pizzeria denying gay pizza wedding situation all that well.
What you said. Let’s not worry about ‘24. 2020 is yet another Flight 93 election. Today’s Dems with an agenda of open borders, socialism and reparations will destroy what’s left if this county if given the opportunity. I can’t believe anyone thinks Haley adds anything in ‘20. Pence is a fine #2.
Are we ready for a one-legged president?
2020 is a done deal.
The future of America hangs on 2024 - no clear candidate of the likes of Trump to not only win but do whatever it takes to restore our Free Constitutional Republic.
This thing is just getting started. The RIGHT candidate for 2024 hasn't yet appeared and is a VERY BIG DEAL.
