Trump Wins New Hampshire GOP Primary

Trump

Former President Donald J. Trump defeated former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley tonight in New Hampshire ‘s Republican Presidential Primary.

But unlike Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who opted out after a second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses and endorsed the presidential candidacy of Trump, Haley vowed to stick around.

“I want to congratulate Donald Trump on his victory tonight,” she said. “He earned it. And I want to acknowledge that. Now, you’ve all heard the chatter among the political class. They’re falling all over themselves saying this race is over. Well, I have news for all of them. New Hampshire is first in the nation. It is not the last in the nation.

“This race is far from over,” Haley added. “There are dozens of states left to go. And the next one is my sweet state of South Carolina.”

She served as governor there.

“At one point in this race, there were 14 of us running, and we were at two percent in the polls. Well, I’m a fighter, and I’m scrappy, and now we’re the last one standing next to Donald Trump,” Haley said.

Bounced out of office after a term, Trump, the former Apprentice TV personality faces four indictments totaling 91 felony charges, including his alleged efforts to unlawfully overturn the 2020 election results. On Jan. 6th, 2021, Trump encouraged a mob of his supporters to march to the U.S. Capitol, where they broke in and threatened to subvert Vice President Mike Pence’s constitutional duty to certify the 2020 presidential election.

Pence and numerous other elected officials had to evacuate the building.

Trump also tried to convince the Georgia Secretary of State to overturn the Peach Tree State’s presidential election results favoring Democratic rival and sitting U.S. President Joe Biden.

Many Trump backers told reporters on the New Hampshire campaign trail that they don’t care if their candidate is convicted on any of the felony charges he faces as they seek to restore him to the White House.

New Jerseyans Chris Christie and Hirsh Singh both appeared on Tuesday night’s ballot in New Hampshire but had dropped out of the contest by the time voters went to the polls.
