Nikki Haley says she will only debate Donald Trump or Joe Biden

After former President Donald Trump dominated the Iowa caucuses, GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley said in a statement Tuesday that she would only debate Trump or President Joe Biden.

“We had five great debates this campaign,” Haley said in the statement. “Unfortunately, Donald Trump has avoided all of these challenges. He has nowhere to hide. The next debate I have will be with either Donald Trump or Joe Biden. I’m looking forward to it.”

Haley’s statement came after a disappointing defeat in the Iowa caucuses, where she came in third place with about 19% of the vote – behind Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ 21% and Trump’s 51%.
