Haley Drops Out


Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley suspended her bid for the GOP presidential nomination yesterday, a day after ceding 14 of 15 state primary contests to former President Donald Trump during Super Tuesday. Haley, the last major Republican challenger to Trump's reelection bid (and his former ambassador to the United Nations), declined to endorse Trump during her announcement. Democrat long shot Rep. Dean Phillips (MN-3) also ended his campaign yesterday, endorsing President Joe Biden.


The decision further solidifies a likely rematch between Biden and Trump, the first contest between a current and former president since Grover Cleveland and Benjamin Harrison in 1892. Roughly 60% of voters say they are not enthusiastic about a rematch, and independent candidate Robert Kennedy Jr. is currently polling around 13%.


In related news, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) endorsed Trump yesterday. The pair had reportedly not spoken in three years since McConnell blamed Trump for his role in the events of Jan. 6.
