ANKENY — On the heels of her CNN debate performance, Nikki Haley took the stage in Ankeny, Iowa on Thursday, Jan. 11. As the Iowa caucuses near, Haley is hoping to separate herself from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in a fight for second place.

She urged attendees to fill out commit-to-caucus cards and participate in the caucuses on Monday, Jan. 15 despite the potential record-breaking cold poised to strike Iowa.
