New Hampshire newspaper endorses Haley: ‘Fireball from the heavens’ to knock out Trump, Biden  

On Sunday, less than two days after the Granite State primary, Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley received an endorsement from New Hampshire's Union Leader newspaper.

“If you have the option of voting Republican on Tuesday, we strongly encourage you to choose Nikki Haley as our next president. New Hampshire is ready for change,” the union leader's op-ed said. “America is ready for change. The world is ready for change. We want a better option than the last eight years, and Nikki Haley is that option.”

The editorial is The magazine, published on Sunday, described the last two presidents as “dinosaurs” whose “lives were targeted and nature chose them for extinction”, without naming them directly.

“The dinosaurs of the past two administrations have certainly been under attack, and Nikki Haley is the fireball from heaven that will wipe them out,” the editorial wrote.

“Pushing for a rematch of the last election means putting an octogenarian in the White House and an incompetent vice president in the spotlight,” the editorial continued. “Haley isn't shy about the fact that she has at least a quarter-century age advantage over these candidates, and she's right in her point. Nikki Haley is in her prime, and she's spending those prime years with her parents raising their family.” I intend to dedicate myself to the country I have chosen to serve.”

The editorial argued that a vote for Haley was a vote not just for President Biden and former President Trump, but for the candidates, both of whom maintain comfortable leads in their respective party races.

Opinion polling indexes maintained by The Hill and Decision Desk headquarters show that the op-ed also focused on Republican rivals Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Trump, who has an 11.1 point lead over Haley in New Hampshire. No names were mentioned. Notably, Haley's rise in polls in the Granite State has narrowed Trump's lead in recent weeks. DeSantis' approval rating is in the single digits, according to polling indicators. DeSantis announced Sunday that he was withdrawing from the race.

Trump easily won last week's Iowa caucuses, defeating DeSantis by nearly 30 points, and Haley came in a close third behind the Florida governor.
