  • Republican Nikki Haley has kicked off her 2024 presidential campaign. She's highlighting her biography while trying to sidestep the looming presence of her onetime boss, former President Donald Trump. On Tuesday, the former South Carolina governor released a short video announcing her campaign. She formally launched her campaign Wednesday at a rally in the historic coastal city of Charleston, South Carolina. Haley cast herself as a figure for generational change who can help the party win the White House again, and urged voters to "put your trust in a new generation." She's the first notable Republican to challenge Trump for the nomination.
  • Nevada lawmakers have passed a bill aiming to make the state the first to weigh in on the 2024 presidential primary contests. The move on Monday upends decades of political tradition and is likely to prompt pushback from other early states that want to retain their places in the calendar. Nevada's bill still needs to be approved by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak to become law, It also needs backing of the national parties. The push for Nevada to jump past Iowa's caucuses and New Hampshire's longstanding first presidential primary follows a behind-the-scenes lobbying campaign led by former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
