Venture capitalist Keith Rabois in Florida, Texas real estate mogul Harlan Crow, and Lynn Davis of Fidelis Realty Partners have recently hosted fundraising events in support of Haley. Additionally, this month sees former President of Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Gary Cohn, organizing a fundraising event for her in New York.
In a discreet gathering, Haley also engaged with billionaire and influential Republican donor Miriam Adelson during the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual Las Vegas meeting. Adelson, who is anticipated to maintain a neutral stance in the Republican primary, also had a private dinner with the leading candidate, former President Donald Trump.
This increased attention from donors aligns with Haley’s rising momentum in the primary race. Although she still trails significantly behind Trump, recent polls show her neck and neck or even edging ahead of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for the runner-up spot. It is expected that Cameron, a multimillion-dollar donor to Republican initiatives, will contribute to Haley’s super PAC, SFA Fund, Inc.
Haley’s campaign spokesperson has opted not to comment on the matter.
Cameron, the CEO of Mountaire Farms headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas, was a significant supporter and ally of Trump during the 2020 election and was part of the White House’s Covid-19 economic revitalization advisory board. However, his recent contributions have been directed towards Trump’s competitors, including Pence and the Koch brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity Action, which is encouraging the party to seek a Trump alternative. In 2023 alone, Cameron’s contributions to Republican efforts have exceeded $8 million, as per FEC records.
Haley’s campaign is gaining traction among those in the GOP who are reconsidering their support for Trump. Her fundraising efforts yielded over $11 million between July and September.
