Nikki Haley Has a New Gig Going After Running for President

Originally published by Caitlyn Clark for the Post and Courier

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is taking her 20 years of political experience to a conservative think tank in Washington, D.C., in a move that allows her to keep a high national profile should she run for the presidency again.

Haley will join the Hudson Institute, the group announced April 15.

The news comes about a month after Haley suspended her 2024 Republican presidential bid .

It also finally answers the question that many political watchers had been wondering: What’s next for Haley?

Haley will become the Walter P. Stern chair at the institute.

“When our policymakers fail to call out our enemies or acknowledge the importance of our alliances, the world is less safe,” Haley said in a statement announcing the news.

“That is why Hudson’s work is so critical,” she added. “They believe the American people should have the facts and policymakers should have the solutions to support a secure, free, and prosperous future. I look forward to partnering with them to defend the principles that make America the greatest country in the world.”

Haley joins an organization that has included its share of notable members in the past, including former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and former Vice President Dan Quayle.

In 2020, former Attorney General William Barr joined the Hudson Institute as a distinguished fellow. Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao joined in 2021.

It is unclear if Haley will collect a check from the Hudson Institute as part of this role. Whether she decides to move or regularly travel to Washington is entirely up to her.
