‘Scrappy’ Haley looks to spin loss in New Hampshire as opportunity in South Carolina

CONCORD, New Hampshire — Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley came up short in the New Hampshire primary to translate her strength with independent voters to a takedown of former President Donald Trump.

The former South Carolina governor spoke to supporters soon after Trump was the projected winner and congratulated him, saying, “He earned it.” With 40% of the vote counted, Trump led 53% to 46% for Haley.

Haley vowed to remain in the race.

“New Hampshire is first in the nation; it is not last in the nation. This race is far from over. There are dozens of states left to go,” Haley said. “The next one is my sweet state of South Carolina.”
