Trump wins New Hampshire primary and mocks Haley as ‘imposter’

US

Donald Trump has won the Republican presidential primary in New Hampshire.

The result is a setback for former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley who invested significant time and financial resources into winning the state.

She is the last major challenger in the race after Florida governor Ron DeSantis ended his presidential bid over the weekend.

Ms Haley said after the result: “This race is far from over. There are dozens of states still to go.”

She congratulated Mr Trump on his victory, adding “he earned it”.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden also won in the Democratic New Hampshire primary even though he was not on the ballot.

His supporters mounted a write-in campaign on his behalf to avoid a loss, even though the contest awards no delegates because it violates the national party rules he pushed for.
