NeoCon Nikki Haley Announces New Gig After Her Failed Presidential Campaign

DCNF(DCNF)—Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley will serve as the next Walter P. Stern Chair of the conservative Hudson Institute following her suspended 2024 presidential run, according to a Monday press release.

Haley was the last remaining challenger to former President Donald Trump in the Republican primary until she dropped out of the race following a slew of Super Tuesday losses. The former ambassador and South Carolina governor, who received a Global Leadership Award from the foreign policy think tank in 2018, said she will seek to “defend the principles that make America the greatest country in the world,” according to the press release.

“When our policymakers fail to call out our enemies or acknowledge the importance of our alliances, the world is less safe. That is why Hudson’s work is so critical,” Haley said in a statement. “They believe the American people should have the facts and policymakers should have the solutions to support a secure, free, and prosperous future.”

Hudson is honored to announce that @NikkiHaley, the former governor of South Carolina and US ambassador to the UN, will be the next Walter P. Stern Chair.

The Hudson Institute created the position in 2020 to honor the achievements by the late Walter P. Stern, chairman emeritus of the Hudson Institute and vice president emeritus of The Washington Institute for Near East Policy, who passed away in 2022, according to the press release.

“It is fitting that Nikki has taken on this title,” Sarah May Stern, chair of the Hudson Institute’s Board of Trustees, said in a statement. “She is a courageous and insightful policymaker and these qualities are vital in making Hudson the powerhouse policy organization it is today, and I am extremely proud that she has joined the Institute.”

Haley notched only two primary wins during the 2024 cycle — in Washington, D.C., on March 3 and in Vermont on March 5 — with her next closest share being in New Hampshire on Jan. 23 at 43.2%.
