(TheRedWire.com) – Following the launch of a presidential campaign by Nikki Haley, Democrats now have to figure out how they are going to handle the former South Carolina governor’s entry into the presidential race.
While the Democrats have long expected the campaign return of former President Trump and have started preparing for a fight against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), Haley remains a mystery in terms of how the party will approach their fight against her.
Haley is the first major GOP member to challenge Trump for the GOP nomination in 2024. However, the Democrats may have to start preparing for an unprecedented situation by figuring out how they are going to be able to promote Biden’s, 80, reelection, against a much younger female candidate, who if successful would become the first female president in the country.
This is not the first time that Biden will have faced female White House opponents. Most notably in the 2020 primary, he faced his current-vice president, Kamala Harris, along with a number of other female candidates. However, while Biden managed to win both the primary and against Trump, there are many Democrats who were still hoping to see a woman running the country for the first time.
This would mean that Haley, running against Biden, could potentially entice voters from the Democratic side to vote for her.
Rina Shah, a Republican strategist and campaign veteran, has noted that both gender and race are important aspects of the presidential race, especially now that only two people have announced their candidacies.
