Americans For Prosperity Action, a large conservative group supporting former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s bid for president, has announced that it will no longer spend money to help her following her fourth straight loss.

The move by the Koch network comes after Haley lost by 20 points to former President Donald Trump last weekend.

The group endorsed Haley in late November ahead of the Iowa caucuses, which gave Haley a boost in the state and helped weaken the top alternative to Trump: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

Americans For Prosperity Action CEO Emily Seidel said in an email on Sunday, “Haley has shown us again and again that we made the right decision in supporting her candidacy and she continues to have our strong endorsement.”

Yet Seidel acknowledged that “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.”

“And so while we will continue to endorse her, we will focus our resources where we can make the difference,” she added. “And that’s the U.S. Senate and House.”


“If Donald Trump is at the top of the Republican ticket, the risk of one-party rule by a Democratic Party captured by the Progressive Left is severe and would do irreparable damage to the country,” the letter concluded. “The last 3 election cycles have painted a very clear picture of what we can expect from voters who consistently rejected Donald Trump and his impact on the Republican party brand. This has been reinforced by the recent elections in Virginia in 2023 and the special elections in New York and Pennsylvania just this month. And we should expect this to increase further as the criminal trials progress.”
