CNN has reported that Haley is set to take part in a live event in Iowa, a key early primary state, on June 4.
The event will be moderated by Jake Tapper and is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.

During a recent public appearance, former President Donald Trump was met with a lively exchange with his interviewer on stage. The audience cheered and laughed as the two clashed over various topics, including questions about the events of January 6th, the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, the 2020 election, and Trump’s recent legal issues.
In early February, the presidential race saw the entrance of Haley as the second Republican candidate to join the fray.
Additionally, the former governor is competing against her fellow South Carolina senator, Tim Scott. The Republican primary field is set to expand with the anticipated entry of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former Vice President Mike Pence.
They will be joining the likes of former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, and conservative radio host Larry Elder.
