2024 ELECTION/NIKKI HALEY: “Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina endorsed Donald Trump Friday ahead of next week’s New Hampshire primary, the latest sign the Republican party is rallying around the former president’s candidacy after his historic Iowa win.

The decision marks a major blow to Scott’s fellow South Carolinian Nikki Haley, the former U.N. ambassador who is banking on a strong showing in New Hampshire to keep her presidential hopes alive…

‘We need a president who sees Americans as one American family, and that’s why I came to the very warm state of New Hampshire to endorse the next president of the United States, President Donald Trump,’ Scott said.”
