Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley speaks March 18 at the Vision '24 conference in North Charleston, S.C. 

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Republicans who are seeking to lead their party in the 2024 presidential race gathered in South Carolina this weekend with a goal at the forefront of their agenda: taking on “woke ideology.”

On Saturday in North Charleston, the group Palmetto Family, which lobbies for what it considers to be “biblical values," hosted Vision ’24, described by organizers as “casting the conservative vision" for the next White House race. Several hundred attendees heard from presidential hopefuls, including Nikki Haley, a former South Carolina governor who was Donald Trump's U.N. ambassador, and tech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy.
