The race is on to see who can finish second to Donald Trump heading into the GOP convention. Nikki Haley has generated enough buzz- and campaign cash- that some feel she might actually pull off the upset, especially now that money from the Koch brothers has come her way. Can she actually knock off Trump for the GOP bid?

National Review editor-in-chief Rich Lowry thinks Haley’s campaign comes up short. He appeared on 710 WOR’s Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning program and laid out what he thinks is the more realistic path to success for the former South Carolina governor.

“Eight to ten million is meaningful, plus they’ll lend her some really professional field organizers,” Lowry told Berman and Riedel. ‘So, her path is finish second in Iowa; it’s hard to see her winning in Iowa. Then, surge in New Hampshire and somehow nip Trump thee with the support of a lot of independent voters, who can vote in that primary, and then hope something comes up. But, you know, it’s hard to see her consolidating enough of the Republican vote, which would require eating significantly into the MAGA segment of the party to actually beat Trump.”

Lowry also discussed the Joe Biden strategy of appeasement toward Iran, pointing out that even the man some called the worst US president before him saw the light on the terrorist-supporting regime. “They have American blood on their hands going back decades, including on October 7th, where Americans were killed and kidnapped. But, you know, Jimmy Carter, when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, he was like, ‘You know what, I was wrong, we’re doing a huge defense build-up, these people are really dangerous, they’re more dangerous than I thought’, and there should have been a similar reaction to Biden here… but that hasn’t happened.”
