Miami, Florida – Nikki Haley, a determined contender in the presidential race, is set to host two major fundraising events in Miami today. Her commitment to the campaign remains unwavering, despite the challenges she faces in her bid for the Republican nomination.
The day’s activities begin with a reception and luncheon scheduled from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Offering access at varying price points, the event tickets start at $2,500 per person, escalating to $6,600 for the VIP reception and reaching $10,000 for those aspiring to co-host.
The second event, described as “a private roundtable” with Haley, is an exclusive affair slated from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. The participation cost for this event is set at $16,600 per person. Both fundraisers are set against the backdrop of Miami Beach’s vibrant scene.
These Miami events are critical to Haley’s campaign, with a target to raise $1 million. This ambitious goal underscores the importance of these fundraisers in bolstering her campaign’s finances.
Haley’s fundraising events in Miami are strategically timed, occurring just a day after President Joe Biden’s fundraiser in the same city. This juxtaposition highlights the competitive nature of the presidential race and the urgency to secure financial support.
National Campaign Efforts
Haley’s visit to Miami is part of a broader national fundraising effort. Despite finishing third in the Iowa caucus and trailing by 11 points behind Donald Trump in the New Hampshire primary, she remains resolute in her campaign. Despite increasing calls from fellow Republicans to withdraw from the race, Haley’s commitment remains steadfast.
Haley’s campaign continues amidst growing opposition, notably from Donald Trump, who has escalated his attacks post-New Hampshire primary. Trump’s threats to donors supporting Haley’s campaign, warning of a permanent ban from the “MAGA camp,” have not deterred her. In fact, following these threats, Haley’s campaign reported raising over $1 million.
The Miami events have attracted significant support from notable figures, including hedge fund billionaires Barry Sternlicht and Dan Och. Additionally, Jackie Soffer, Chairman and CEO of Turnberry Associates, features as a co-chair. Local hosts for the luncheon include Lani Kahn Drody, Nicole Gomez Goldmeier, and Miami attorney Scott Srebnick.
