BBC: New Hampshire Primary: Nikki Haley Vows to Fight on After Second Loss to Trump

January 25, 2024

Republican presidential hopeful Nikki Haley has vowed to press on with her campaign in the wake of a second consecutive loss to Donald Trump. Ms Haley campaigned across New Hampshire ahead of Tuesday’s primary, courting both independent and moderate Republican voters. But she was unable to catch Mr Trump, who had a comfortable 11-point lead with most ballots counted. He now appears set to clinch the Republican nomination.

The former president last week won a landslide in Iowa’s caucuses, with Ms Haley placing third, behind Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Mr DeSantis quit the race days later, leaving Ms Haley as the last remaining rival to Mr Trump.

ROKK Co-Founder and Partner, Ron Bonjean, spoke with BBC about what the results of the New Hampshire primary mean for Haley moving forward.
