AFP Action Statement on New Hampshire Primary Results

Arlington, VA – Americans for Prosperity Action Senior Advisor Emily Seidel made the following statement after tonight’s New Hampshire primary results: 

“Tonight’s results in New Hampshire show that Nikki Haley is closing the gap and that she is the clear alternative for voters who are ready to close the book on the toxic Biden-Trump political era. This is still an uphill battle. Now all eyes turn to South Carolina, where she has a steeper road ahead.  

“For the past several months, we’ve been engaged in races for the U.S. House, U.S. Senate, and presidential levels to prevent a scenario where one party progressive rule comes to Washington, D.C. at a time when our country can least afford it. If Republicans nominate Donald Trump, we risk a repeat of the past three elections and the very real threat of full progressive control increases dramatically. This is why Joe Biden and the Democrats want him to be the nominee. The stakes for our country simply couldn’t be higher. 

“Our teams will continue talking to South Carolina voters in support of Nikki Haley. We are laser focused on electing the candidates who can be the firewall preventing one party progressive rule of the federal government. We have three ways to win: the Senate, the House, and the presidential primary. Through our multi-pronged effort we are prepared to get this done.   

“I’m proud of our activists’ ongoing efforts. Despite challenging conditions, their support shows that AFP Action consistently takes principled and tough action when our country needs it most.”

Nikki Haley Emerges from Iowa with the Momentum

 Haley Is the Only Candidate Standing Between Americans and Another Four Years of Biden

Arlington, VA – Americans for Prosperity Action Senior Advisor Emily Seidel made the following statement after tonight’s Iowa caucus results:

“Nikki Haley did exactly what she needed to in Iowa and is in a strong position heading to New Hampshire where it’s a two-person race and she is within striking distance of Trump. Ron DeSantis poured everything he could into Iowa because it was his only shot at changing the dynamics of the race, but the reality is that he’s polling in single digits in New Hampshire and South Carolina with no path forward. We’ve said all along that this is a marathon, not a sprint and Nikki Haley is surging in New Hampshire, where history has shown eventual nominees gain critical momentum into South Carolina and the Super Tuesday states.

“Poll after poll shows that Nikki Haley would crush Joe Biden in a general election, winning some battleground states by double digits and delivering a landslide Republican election that would sweep candidates at every level into office. She is not only able to win, she’s also able to write a new chapter for America and turn the page on the failed policies of the Biden Administration.

“Republicans cannot afford to put control of Washington at risk by nominating Donald Trump – who is by far the weakest candidate against Joe Biden. At a time when millions of Americans are struggling, Nikki Haley is the only candidate who can defeat Biden, unify the nation, and help ensure a brighter future for our country.”

AFP Action Senior Advisor Tyler Raygor said the following:

“Tonight was a strong showing for Haley, and heading into New Hampshire and South Carolina she’s exactly where she needs to be to make this a true two-person race.

“In the past few months, we have spoken with hundreds of thousands of Iowans, 50,000 of whom met our activists on their doorsteps in just the past week, despite the storms.

“But while all eyes have been on Iowa, AFP Action has been speaking to voters throughout the early and Super Tuesday states and reached more than one million voters. This is a marathon and not a sprint – AFP Action is uniquely positioned to continue amplifying Haley’s positive message of a new chapter in American politics.”

AFP Action is helping propel Nikki Haley forward with an unmatched on-the-ground effort and layered mail and digital strategy. In just seven short weeks since endorsing Haley for President, AFP Action has reached out to more than 1 million voters and is putting to use the knowledge acquired from interviews with more than 6 million aligned primary voters through the summer and fall of 2023 to build support for Nikki Haley. One week ago, AFP Action launched a $27 million mail, digital, and grassroots campaign in the early states titled “Strongest” that shows why Nikki Haley is without question the strongest candidate Republicans could run against Joe Biden in November.

AFP Action has hundreds of activists and volunteers out in New Hampshire, South Carolina, Super Tuesday states, and beyond. The energy and enthusiasm AFP Action is hearing at the doors has translated into clear momentum for Haley in the polls. In New Hampshire, AFP Action’s polling shows that Haley has closed a 14-point gap and is now statistically tied with Donald Trump in a head-to-head matchup. The Wall Street Journal’s latest polling shows that Haley beats Biden by 17 points in a general election matchup.

The campaign’s digital and connected TV ad, titled “Strongest”, highlights that Nikki Haley crushes Joe Biden by double digits in a general election matchup and she even beats him in the swing states that Trump lost in 2020. While poll after poll shows Donald Trump is the weakest candidate against Joe Biden, the numbers show Nikki Haley is by far the strongest candidate to turn the page on the past and beat Joe Biden in November.

WATCH: “Strongest”

Americans for Prosperity Action Director Nathan Nascimento said:

“Nikki Haley is by far the strongest candidate Republicans could run against Joe Biden, and no one else is even close. Nikki Haley would boost Republicans up and down the ballot, with AFP Action’s internal polls showing she is leading Biden in some critical swing states by double digits. With the criminal trials and the negative baggage of Donald Trump, our country can’t risk four more years of Joe Biden. If Republicans want to win in 2024, there is no stronger choice than Nikki Haley for President.”

Since its endorsement, AFP Action has reached out to more than 650,000 voters and is putting to use the knowledge acquired from interviews with more than 6 million Republican primary voters through the summer and fall of 2023 to build support for Nikki Haley. The energy and enthusiasm AFP Action is hearing at the doors has translated into clear momentum for Haley in the polls.

WATCH: “TO BEAT JOE BIDEN, WE HAVE TO MOVE ON FROM DONALD TRUMP” [30s, 30s, 60s]

“I’m just so tired of it all. The drama and chaos of Donald Trump. It’s all about him, and not about us.

“The obsession with the 2020 election, revenge, and now the indictments. It’s exhausting.

“And none of it helps us beat Joe Biden.

“It doesn’t have to be like this.

“To beat Joe Biden, we have to move on from Donald Trump.”

AFP Action Director Nathan Nascimento said:

“Joe Biden is hurting our country, and with Donald Trump on the ballot, Joe Biden will win again. Americans are calling out for a better choice. They’re ready to turn the page on the dysfunction and elect someone who can get back to advancing good policies that will improve peoples’ lives. AFP Action’s grassroots army is ready to help Americans break the downward spiral of our politics and put a better choice on the ballot next November. At tonight’s debate, we’re looking forward to seeing each of the candidates share how they intend to move our country forward and win in 2024.”

AFP Action Releases $1 Million Ad Buy in Early Primary States Urging Voters to Move Beyond Biden and Trump

ARLINGTON, VA – Today, Americans for Prosperity Action (AFP Action) released two new ads urging voters to move on from Joe Biden and Donald Trump. The digital and connected TV ads will total $1 million across the early primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.

Watch “Electability”

Will Republicans win this time?

Beating Joe Biden is the only way to get our country back on the right track.

Nominating Trump again would hand Democrats another win and ensure four more years of President Biden.

Republicans need a new leader, someone who will win the fight and get elected.

If we nominate Trump, Republicans lose and Biden wins.

Watch “Unelectable”

AFP Action Director Nathan Nascimento said:

“We’ve seen the kind of damage Joe Biden can do with complete control of Washington. That’s why AFP Action is engaging earlier than ever in primaries – including the Republican presidential primary – to ensure that Americans have better choices in 2024. Voters are signaling urgency around choosing a Republican presidential candidate who can win the general election, make Biden answer for his failures, and get things done that will put America back on track. AFP Action is ready to help Americans turn the page and elect a better candidate who can lead our country forward.”

To date this year, AFP has already communicated with over 2.6 million potential Republican primary voters in key battleground states to understand what issues matter most to them and what they are looking for in candidates for state and federal office next year. AFP Action will acquire this data to bring new voters into the primary process and ensure that we elect better candidates.

In 2022, AFP and AFP Action engaged in 457 races, knocking on more than 7 million doors, delivering over 100 million pieces of mail, and reaching millions more voters through phone and email.

Arlington, VA – With the country facing its most consequential election in a generation next year, Americans for Prosperity Action (AFP Action) announced today it has raised $76.3 million in the first six months of 2023, according its latest filing with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).  With more than $74.6 million cash-on-hand, AFP Action is well-positioned to make a major impact across hundreds of critical races heading into the 2024 election.

We are humbled by the tremendous financial support from our donors and grateful for the growing support for our millions of grassroots activists across the country.  This FEC report is a reminder that AFP Action is the best resourced and most effective grassroots force in the country, and we are prepared to invest the resources needed to help elect the types of leaders America deserves next year.”

To date this year, AFP has already communicated with over 1.4 million potential Republican primary voters in key battleground states to understand what issues matter most to them and their families, and what they are looking for in candidates for state and federal office next year. AFP Action will acquire this data to bring new voters into the primary process and deploy its grassroots army to elect the best candidates.
