As voters across 16 states and one territory cast their ballots in a series of critical primaries and caucuses today, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has conspicuously stepped back from the public eye.

On what is arguably the most pivotal day in the race for the presidential nomination, Haley has returned to her home state, with no public events slated for Super Tuesday evening.

The Super Tuesday primaries stand as a cornerstone in the American electoral process, second only to the November general elections in their national significance. Today, voters are making their choices for presidential nominees, with several states also determining candidates for governor, the U.S. Senate, and district attorneys.

States involved include:

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Colorado
  • Iowa
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • Minnesota
  • North Carolina
  • Oklahoma
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Vermont
  • Virginia
  • American Samoa

In the past week, Haley’s campaign blitz saw her crisscrossing these very states that are voting today, in a final push to win over voters.

However, as the polls opened this morning, there was a notable absence of Haley’s presence. Not only is she not appearing publicly tonight, but her campaign’s future plans remain enigmatic with no further rallies appearing on her official schedule.

AP reported:

Nikki Haley has pegged her Republican presidential campaign to the biggest day of the primary season, crossing the country over the last several days to visit Super Tuesday states.

But the former U.N. ambassador and former South Carolina governor is not holding any public events Tuesday night. And she has no future campaign rallies listed on her website.

Haley’s campaign says she’s spending election night in the Charleston, South Carolina, area and watching results come in with her staff.

Says the campaign: “The mood is jubilant.”

Has “Queen of the Swamp” finally accepted defeat?!
