Former President Donald Trump emerged victorious in the Republican primary in New Hampshire, securing a historic back-to-back win following his landslide victory in Iowa. Despite facing stiff competition from former South Carolina Gov.
Nikki Haley, Trump’s commanding lead, with over 94% of votes tallied, marked him as the first Republican to sweep both Iowa and New Hampshire since 1976. Haley, who campaigned vigorously in New Hampshire, trailed behind with a double-digit margin. Trump, expressing disappointment in Haley’s performance, criticized her refusal to drop out after significant losses. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden won the Democratic primary through a write-in campaign, although the contest awards no delegates due to party rules.
