Nikki Haley courts Republicans after losing Trump’s favor

Nikki Haley is seeking a course-correction after a falling out with Trump World earlier this year left her isolated from some top conservatives.

The former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations will headline the Iowa GOP’s annual Lincoln Dinner in Des Moines on Thursday, the latest step in a months-long effort to rehabilitate her image in conservative circles after criticizing former President Trump over the Jan. 6 riot.

Since then, she has endorsed female Republican candidates, met with House conservatives on Capitol Hill and praised Trump publicly — all the while fueling speculation that she’s planning to mount her own bid for the White House.

But Republicans remain split on whether her efforts to get back into the good graces of Trump’s conservative base will be successful, noting the intense sense of loyalty many Republican voters continue to feel toward the former president.
