Nikki Haley raises $2.6M post-New Hampshire despite blacklist threats from Trump

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has hauled in $2.6 million since losing to Donald Trump in Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, according to her campaign.

The 48-hour haul includes $1.2 million in small-dollar and digital donations and comes on the heels of the former president threatening to blacklist everyone who donates to his former ambassador to the United Nations.

“Anybody that makes a ‘Contribution’ to Birdbrain, from this moment forth, will be permanently barred from the MAGA camp,” Trump, 77, said in a Thursday Truth Social post, using his preferred disparaging nickname for Haley, 52.

“Donald Trump’s threats highlight the stark choice in this election: personal vendettas or real conservative leadership,” Haley spokesperson AnnMarie Graham-Barnes said.

“Trump’s scheme blew up in his face. The contributions to the Haley campaign are pouring in—proof that people are sick of the drama and are rallying behind Nikki’s vision for a strong and proud America.”

But Haley’s cash pile has also taken a hit after her second-place finish in the Granite State

Several of her major donors .have said they are reconsidering their flow of funds because they don’t see a path to her getting the nomination.

Dmitri Mehlhorn, a political philanthropy adviser for Democrat and Haley megadonor Reid Hoffman, told The Post this week that Haley will have to show a “new potential path to victory” before receiving more cash from the billionaire.

“It is still possible that Governor Haley will be able to persuade voters that Trump is no longer stable and cannot carry their banner into the fall campaign,” Melhorn said Wednesday. “Before recommending another investment at this later stage in the process, however, I would need to see a new potential path to victory given that she did not win New Hampshire.”

Metal magnate Andy Sabin also expressed hesitancy Wednesday about continuing to fund her campaign.

“You have to know when to hold them. You got to know when to fold them. You got to know when to walk away. It’s time for Nikki Haley to walk away,” Sabin told Fox Business host Neil Cavuto Wednesday, arguing that “there’s absolutely no upside to her going to South Carolina.”

Haley has nearly a dozen fundraisers planned ahead of the Feb. 24 primary in her home state.
