Nikki Haley      

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations & Former S.C. Governor; 2024 Republican Presidential Candidate

Nikki R. Haley is the former United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations. She served as a member of President Donald Trump's Cabinet and the National Security Council. At the United Nations, Ambassador Haley introduced reforms that made the organization more efficient, transparent, and accountable.

In the UN Security Council, Ambassador Haley worked to defend Americans' interests and keep our country safe.

As UN Ambassador, Haley championed human rights. During the U.S. presidency of the UN Security Council, she hosted the first-ever session devoted solely to promoting human rights.

Ambassador Haley was elected in 2010 as the first female and first minority Governor of South Carolina. Reelected in 2014, she served as Governor until confirmed by the U.S. Senate as the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations in January of 2017.

Under Governor Haley’s leadership, South Carolina was a national leader in economic development. Known as the “Beast of the Southeast,” South Carolina’s unemployment rate hit a 15-year low.

Governor Haley also ushered in the state's largest education reform in decades – making education funding more equitable for schools in the state's poorest communities, prioritizing reading in early grades, and equipping classrooms with the latest technology.
