JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon on Wednesday told a group of wealthy corporation leaders to help Nikki Haley win the Republican presidential nomination.
“Even if you’re a very liberal Democrat, I urge you, help Nikki Haley, too. Get a choice on the Republican side that might be better than [Donald] Trump,” Dimon said at a summit hosted by The New York Times’ DealBook.
He did stop short of saying the GOP nominee should be anyone but Trump, though, telling journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin, “I would never say that, you know, because he might be the president and I have to deal with him, too,” said Dimon.
Hedge fund veteran Bill Ackman was in the audience for Dimon’s talk. Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Disney CEO Bob Iger, and media titan David Zaslav were all scheduled to speak later in the day.
Americans for Prosperity, the political arm of the powerful Koch network, formally endorsed Nikki Haley’s presidential campaign on Tuesday, promising to commit its nationwide coalition of activists — and virtually unlimited funds — to helping Haley defeat former President Donald Trump in the GOP primary contest.
“AFP Action is proud to throw our full support behind Nikki Haley, who offers America the opportunity to turn the page on the current political era, to win the Republican primary and defeat Joe Biden next November,” AFP president and CEO Emily Seidel wrote in a memo announcing the group’s decision.
“She has what it takes to lead a policy agenda to take on our nation’s biggest challenges and help ensure our country’s best days are ahead. With the grassroots and data capability we bring to bear in this race, no other organization is better equipped to help her do it.”
The endorsement may help Haley address one of her biggest strategic liabilities.
Despite seizing some polling momentum in recent months, especially in early primary states, the former United Nations ambassador’s campaign has been lacking significant resources on the ground to try to ensure that her supporters turn out to vote. But now, she inherits the organizational heft of what may be the most powerful conservative grassroots organization in the nation. The Koch network, previously referred to as the Koch Brothers, has been building a network of paid conservative activists and volunteers in key states for several years.
