Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley is getting a last-minute boost ahead of the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday from a Bill Kristol-led group bankrolled by the largest Democratic dark money network in the United States, documents show.

Defending Democracy Together has spent more than $96,000 on pro-Haley advertisements and mailers and roughly $448,500 against former President Donald Trump since Jan. 13, according to Federal Election Commission filings. The nonprofit organization was co-founded by Kristol, a Never Trump writer, and notably pocketed $10.8 million between 2020 and 2022 from Sixteen Thirty Fund, a group managed by the $1 billion liberal Arabella Advisors dark money network.

“Sixteen Thirty Fund supported Defending Democracy Together’s bipartisan work to protect the integrity of U.S. elections,” a spokesperson for Sixteen Thirty Fund told the Washington Examiner. “None of the grants support the Haley campaign or any Republican primary candidate.”
