Major endorsement announcement stuns the Republican Party

The 2024 election is already presenting its share of surprises. No one can predict what will happen at any given moment.

And a major endorsement announcement stuns the Republican Party.

While former President Donald Trump is far ahead in the polls, that isn’t stopping his fellow competitors from fighting hard to win the Republican nomination for president.

Most notably of those competitors is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley (R).

Both are fighting one-another for second place in the Republican primary polls while also trying to catch Trump.

But one of these candidates is about to get a boost with a big endorsement from a Republican governor.

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu (R) has announced his full support for Haley during an event in the Granite State on Tuesday.

Before the event occurred, Sununu released a statement, in part saying, “I look forward to joining Nikki at her town hall this evening – it’s going to be a lot of fun!”

It’s been a bit of a mystery as of late to see who the New Hampshire governor would end up endorsing.

He’s appeared at campaign events for Haley, DeSantis, and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) in the past.

According to the Washington Examiner, Haley, DeSantis, Christie, Trump and Vivek Ramaswamy’s campaigns did not respond to a request for a comment about Sununu’s endorsement of Haley.

Last month Sununu told the Washington Examiner what went into his decision in endorsing a candidate.

He detailed how he desired to “choose somebody that I think can be a great leader for this country – not just who can win.”

“The argument that these folks have to make is that they really are positioned to be America’s best opportunity to lead the country, lead the world, in what is undoubtedly going to be some very tough times ahead,” Sununu said.

New Hampshire has the first-in-the-nation primary which will occur on January 23 of next year.

That makes Gov. Sununu’s endorsement of Haley all the more important.

If Haley can use it to build up momentum for her campaign and somehow win the state instead of Donald Trump, then that could turn this race upside down.

But as of now she still has a lot of ground to cover.

According to polling data from FiveThirtyEight, Donald Trump is at 44.7% in the Granite State while Haley sits at 18.9%.
