Biden campaign holds call with top Nikki Haley supporters in attempt to woo support

 May 25, 2024

President Joe Biden's 2024 campaign is in real trouble, according to the polls and the general feeling among most reasonable pundits. 

The Biden campaign is reaching far and wide to corral as much support as possible, even from those unlikely to cast a vote for the elderly president.

According to ABC News, the Biden reelection campaign recently held a call with supporters of Nikki Haley in the wake of her announcement supporting former President Donald Trump in November.

The calls' purpose was to reportedly garner favor with her supporters, as many of them are likely not fans of Trump, but certainly not Democrats, even though the Biden campaign attempted to convince them that there are several commonground issues they can meet on.

What's happening?

The outlet confirmed that Juan Peñalosa, the deputy political director of President Joe Biden's reelection campaign, met with roughly 15 Haley supporters on a call this week.

ABC News noted:

Those who met with Peñalosa included former members of Haley's campaign leadership team for some states, Women for Haley and other voters who supported the former United Nations ambassador's presidential run.

The organizer of the call was Robert Schwartz, executive director of the Haley Voters Working Group and co-founder of Primary Pivot.

Notably, it was reported that the call with Haley's top supporters was planned prior to her announcement that she will vote for Trump in November.

The outlet added:

Schwartz told ABC News that voters who appeared on the call were from several states, including Massachusetts, Virginia, Vermont, and the battleground states of Arizona and Georgia.

Social media reacts

Given the nature of the call, social media users were quick to offer their thoughts on what's happening and why the call really took place.

"I think Nikki may have knowledge of what they’re ‘planning’ next to try to ‘get rid of’ PDJT & is making sure she can step into those shoes at the convention.. She stated a couple days ago that she would be voting for Trump..but I think it’s just her trying to look like a ‘team player’ to get back into the good graces of MAGA.." one X user wrote.

Another X user wrote, "Her supporting Trump is just a fake! A matter of time she’ll pounce & steal Trump official nomination in RNC convention."

Only time will tell if this is just the beginning of such bizarre and curious moves by the Biden campaign.
