Processing

When I began, I said the campaign was grounded in my love of our country.

My mother, a first-generation immigrant, got to vote for her daughter for president.

Only in America.

I am filled with gratitude for the outpouring of support we’ve received from across our great country.

But the time has now come to suspend my campaign.

I said I wanted Americans to have their voices heard.

I have done that.

I have no regrets.

And although I will no longer be a candidate, I will not stop using my voice for the things I believe in.

I end my campaign with the same words I began it from the Book of Joshua. I direct them to all Americans, but especially to so many of the women and girls out there who put their faith in our campaign.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid. Do not be discouraged. For God will be with you wherever you go. 

In this campaign, I have seen our country’s greatness. From the bottom of my heart – thank you America.

God bless.

My very best, 

Nikki Haley
