( – Former President Donald Trump attacked the political win of Charles Koch’s conservative network for continuing to provide support to the only other major Republican primary presidential candidate Nikki Haley. The network recently announced that they would no longer provide funding for Haley and that they would not be financially backing her campaign. 

Americans for Prosperity (AFP) Action had originally officially endorsed the former United Nations Ambassador in November. However, on Sunday in a memo they announced that they would be stopping all spending for her campaign. 

Instead, they claimed that they would be using all available resources to ensure that the GOP would win in House and Senate races. This move was made after Haley had lost in the South Carolina primary to former President Donald Trump by close to 20 points. Haley had previously served in South Carolina as the governor for two terms. 

Emily Seidel, a senior adviser for AFP Action noted in the memo that Haley has clearly stated that she would be continuing her campaign and that they would continue to support her in her efforts. However, as she pointed out no outside group was capable of taking any action that would help Haley win the primary election. 

While Haley lost the race in her home state she vowed that she would continue in the race until Super Tuesday. Her national spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas released a statement thanking AFP for their previous support in the race so far. She added that they would be continuing their fight in the next primary race.
