US elections: Nikki Haley says she is voting Trump for president

Former Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley has announced her intention to vote for Donald Trump, her former opponent and former boss, in the upcoming 2024 US presidential election.

Haley, who previously served as Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations, was the final major contender to withdraw from the Republican primary contest in early March.

At the time of her withdrawal, she refrained from endorsing Trump, instead encouraging him to earn the votes of her supporters.

In her first public statement since exiting the race, delivered on Wednesday, Haley acknowledged that Trump “has not been perfect,” but characterised President Joe Biden’s tenure as a “catastrophe.”

Earlier this year, a significant portion of anti-Trump Republican voters supported Haley’s campaign. Despite her departure from the race over two months ago, her candidacy continues to garner support. She achieved over 20% of the vote in at least two state primary elections in the past fortnight.

The Biden campaign is actively courting these Haley Republicans, a demographic that includes moderate and college-educated independent voters, who could potentially influence the election in favour of the Democratic candidate. President Biden contends that Trump has consistently indicated he does not value the support of those who backed Haley.

How abortion rights might shape the 2024 Election in the United States. As the heat turns up the battleground states that will ultimately determine control of the White House and Congress, Democrats are pulling out all the stops to rally support for abortion rights.

With the future of Roe v. Wade hanging in the balance, Democratic candidates are making it a central issue in their campaigns, while also pushing for ballot measures to protect women’s reproductive rights.

Republicans, on the other hand, are finding themselves on the defensive as they struggle to respond to the growing momentum behind the pro-choice movement.

Abortion Rights Might Shape the 2024 Election

With the recent confirmation of conservative Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, many fear that the landmark abortion rights decision could be overturned, prompting a wave of restrictive state laws.

Roe v Wade overturned – “How media frames the changes, legally and culturally it will be watched by both sides”

In states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin, where the margins are razor-thin, Democrats are hoping that their strong stance on abortion rights will energize voters and tip the scales in their favor.

They are highlighting the importance of protecting women’s access to safe and legal abortion, as well as advocating for comprehensive sex education and affordable contraception.

Meanwhile, Republicans are trying to walk a fine line, attempting to appeal to their conservative base without alienating moderate voters who support abortion rights.

Rallying cry for women’s rights

Some GOP candidates are emphasizing their opposition to late-term abortions and promoting alternatives like adoption, while others are avoiding the topic altogether.

As the election draws closer, the battle over abortion rights is intensifying, with both parties recognizing the high stakes involved. For Democrats, the issue is a rallying cry for women’s rights and reproductive freedom, while Republicans are grappling with how to navigate a shifting political landscape.

The outcome of these crucial races could have far-reaching implications for the future of abortion rights in America.

US election: Donald Trump wins crushing victory in Nevada caucus

Former President Donald Trump has secured a decisive victory in the Nevada Republican caucus, winning by a significant margin. The only other contender listed on the ballot was Ryan Binkley, a pastor and businessman.

As a result of this win, Trump is set to claim all 26 delegates from Nevada, as per the party’s system for selecting its presidential nominee. Initial tallies reported by CNN indicated that the former president garnered over 98% of the total votes.

Speaking briefly at a victory celebration in Las Vegas, Donald Trump remarked, “If we win this state, we easily win the election in November.”

With victories in three states – Nevada, Iowa, and New Hampshire – Donald Trump has solidified his position as the presumptive Republican nominee for the upcoming general election in November. Additionally, he emerged triumphant in a Republican caucus held in the US Virgin Islands, an unincorporated territory.

Nikki Haley, the only remaining significant challenger in the race, opted out of participating in the Nevada caucus and instead focused on the state’s primary vote.

A dispute between the state Republican Party and the Democratic-controlled state legislature led to the holding of two separate ballots in Nevada.

New Hampshire primary – Key facts

  • Today’s pivotal primary: Donald Trump and his sole remaining GOP challenger Nikki Haley are facing off in New Hampshire’s 2024 primary as voters head to the polls to select a Republican nominee to take on Joe Biden in November.
  • Trump and Haley showdown: Trump is seeking to achieve another strong victory after his win in the Iowa caucuses to accelerate his march to the GOP nomination. Polls show Trump’s lead over Haley has widened to double digits in New Hampshire, but he faces a tougher race against her there as it remains to be seen who independent voters will back.
  • Biden is a write-in candidate: Biden, an incumbent who is all but guaranteed to be his party’s nominee, won’t appear on the New Hampshire primary ballot following an internal party dispute over the primary’s date. National Democrats made South Carolina the first official state on its nominating calendar, but New Hampshire’s party chose to stick with Tuesday’s state-run primary. No delegates will be awarded from the contest. Still, there is a campaign in the state to write in Biden’s name.

Trump and Haley go head-to-head in New Hampshire primary 

On Tuesday, Donald Trump faces his final Republican challenger, Nikki Haley, in a crucial primary election in New Hampshire. The former president is aiming to secure a decisive victory and thwart Haley’s bid to become the Republican nominee. 

Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, is banking on the support of New Hampshire’s independent voters to orchestrate an unexpected triumph.

This electoral showdown follows Trump’s overwhelming success in Iowa last week. The winner of the Republican primary will go on to compete against the Democratic nominee, presumably President Joe Biden, in the November US presidential elections. 

The potential face-off between the 81-year-old Biden and the 77-year-old Trump mirrors the 2020 presidential race. In a peculiar turn of events, Democrats are participating in their primary in New Hampshire, but due to a dispute between national and local party officials, Biden is absent from the ballot—the first sitting president to encounter such an issue.

The Republican race narrowed to a two-way contest after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis finished a distant second in Iowa’s caucuses, subsequently withdrawing and endorsing Trump. Trump had already established a substantial lead in New Hampshire polls before DeSantis’ departure. Polls suggest that DeSantis’ supporters see Trump as the most viable alternative and best suited to face Biden in November. 

A recent poll from Suffolk University and the Boston Globe revealed Trump’s commanding lead, with a 19-point advantage over Haley (57% to 38%). Another poll from Monmouth University and the Washington Post confirmed an 18-point lead for Trump (52% to 34%).

During a rally in Laconia, New Hampshire, on Monday night, Trump emphasised the need for significant victories to convey a message that the campaign is serious.”We have to win by big margins” he said.

Nancy Pelosi stands down as leader of the US House Democrats

Nancy Pelosi, who has led Democrats in the US House of Representatives for almost two decades, has announced she is standing down from the role.

She is the most powerful Democrat in Congress and the first woman to serve as speaker of the House. 

Pelosi, 82, will continue to represent her California district in the lower chamber of Congress. 

The Republican party are projected to take back control of the House, meaning Kevin McCarthy will likely to succeed Mrs Pelosi.

“I never would have thought that someday I would go from homemaker to House speaker,” Mrs Pelosi said in a statement in the chamber on Thursday.

“I will not seek re-election to Democratic leadership in the next Congress. The hour has come for a new generation to lead the Democratic caucus,” she said.

Mrs Pelso will continue to serve as speaker until January when a new Congress takes over and will remain in the seat she first took up in 1987 until January 2025. 

New York congressman Hakeem Jeffries is expected to take up the post in the House – it would make him the first black congressional leader in US history.
