Donald Trump Wins New Hampshire Primary

The projections from the Associated Press and Fox News indicate that Donald Trump, the former US President, emerged victorious in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday. This triumph further bolsters his pursuit of the 2024 Republican presidential nomination. Following a resounding win in the Iowa caucuses, Trump now faces only one formidable contender, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. Despite surpassing expectations, Haley fell short of securing a crucial victory. During his celebratory gathering, Trump derided his sole remaining rival, labeling her an “imposter” and asserting that her speech conveyed a false sense of triumph. He emphasized that she did not emerge victorious and had a rather unfavorable night.

The primary results showed that, with 81% of the votes counted, Trump secured 54.8% of the vote, surpassing Haley, who received 43.6%, according to estimates from the Associated Press (AP). Edison Research’s initial projection indicated that Trump would win at least 12 New Hampshire delegates, while Haley would receive 9, with 1 delegate still undecided. Throughout the day, reports indicated a high voter turnout. On the other hand, US President Joe Biden, without actively campaigning or appearing on the state’s ballot, won the largely symbolic Democratic primary in New Hampshire through an unconventional write-in effort.

Biden’s Reelection Campaign

Biden’s reelection campaign stated that Trump’s victory in the New Hampshire primary solidifies his position as the likely Republican Party nominee in 2024, setting the stage for a face-off with Biden on election day. In a statement, Biden’s campaign manager, Julie Chavez Rodriguez, asserted that these results confirm Trump’s dominance in the GOP and the rise of the MAGA movement, which she described as being against freedom and denying the election.

Haley Vowed To Continue Race

Haley made a commitment to persist in the race despite Trump’s anticipated victory. She extended her congratulations to her opponent but firmly declared her determination to continue, emphasizing that the competition is far from being concluded.

Following Trump’s projected win, Haley addressed her supporters, acknowledging the Democrats’ strong desire to run against him. She asserted that a Trump nomination would ultimately result in a victory for Biden.

Prior to the Tuesday vote, Haley’s team confirmed her intention to remain in the race until “Super Tuesday” on March 5. On this day, voters from 16 states will cast their ballots to determine their party’s candidate.

Haley aims to persevere until the primary vote on February 24 in her home state of South Carolina, where she previously served as governor from 2011 to 2017. She believes that having a home-state advantage will work in her favor. A campaign memo stated, “After Super Tuesday, we will have a comprehensive understanding of the current state of this race. By that point, millions of Americans in 26 states and territories will have exercised their right to vote.”
