Trump defeats Haley in New Hampshire Republican presidential primary

Former President Donald Trump won the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary, defeating Nikki Haley, who previously served as U.S. ambassador to the U.N. during a portion of Trump's White House tenure.

While New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu had endorsed Haley, polls had been indicating that Trump had a lead heading into the Granite State contest.

Undeclared voters could also vote in the primary. "An undeclared voter may vote in a state primary or a presidential primary," according to the New Hampshire secretary of state website. "You will be required to choose either a Democratic or Republican ballot when you go to vote."

Trump's New Hampshire victory came after he won the Iowa Republican presidential caucuses last week.

After Vivek Ramaswamy placed fourth in Iowa, he swiftly dropped out and endorsed Trump. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who placed a distant second behind Trump in Iowa, announced on Sunday that he was suspending his campaign and endorsing the former president. Former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who dropped out after barely earning any votes in the Hawkeye State, has expressed support for Haley.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), who launched then later dropped his own presidential bid last year, recently endorsed Trump. Haley appointed Scott to the U.S. Senate more than a decade ago while she was serving as South Carolina governor.

There was also an unsanctioned Democratic presidential primary in New Hampshire on Tuesday.

"January 23rd is a non-binding presidential preference event and is meaningless and the NHDP and presidential candidates should take all steps possible not to participate," Minyon Moore and James Roosevelt Jr., co-chairs of the DNC Rules & Bylaws Committee, declared in a letter earlier this month to New Hampshire Democratic Party chair Raymond Buckley. "No delegates or alternates shall be apportioned based on the results of the January 23, 2024 event."

While President Joe Biden did not appear on the Democratic presidential primary ballot in New Hampshire, voters could write him in.
