Wall Street billionaires plan Haley fundraiser after New Hampshire: Report

A group of Wall Street billionaires is planning a fundraiser for GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley in New York City after the New Hampshire primary, Bloomberg News reported.

Billionaires Stanley Druckenmiller, Henry Kravis, Ken Langone and Cliff Asness are reportedly planning a fundraiser for Haley on Jan. 30, according to an invitation viewed by Bloomberg. A donor speaking on the condition of anonymity told the outlet that the event is just one part of a fundraising swing slated for Haley in between the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries.

The donor told Bloomberg that Haley will be visiting Miami and Palm Beach, Fla., after the Jan. 30 fundraiser in New York to meet with wealthy donors. She will then travel to California and Texas in the first two weeks of February to meet with additional donors, according to the source.

Bloomberg reported that tickets for the fundraising event in New York City start at $3,300 and may be purchased for as much as $33,200. Bloomberg noted that Puck News first reported on the fundraiser.

The Hill has reached out to Haley’s campaign for comment.

Haley’s campaign announced earlier this month that she had hauled in $24 million in fundraising during the fourth quarter last year. The campaign said 83,900 new people donated to her between October and December and that she had $14.3 million in the bank by the end of 2023.

The political wing of the conservative network led by billionaire Charles Koch endorsed Haley last year, marking the first time the deep-pocketed group threw its support behind a Republican candidate in the GOP primary.

Haley is the only GOP challenger to former President Trump after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced he was dropping out of the race Sunday. She is hoping to pull off an upset in New Hampshire’s primary this week, where she is trailing Trump by about 11 percentage points, according to The Hill/Decision Desk HQ.
