    Former two-term New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie returns to New Hampshire in the week ahead when the 2016 GOP White House contender is expected to launch a 2024 campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. Sources familiar with Christie’s thinking say that the former governor will formally launch his campaign on Tuesday evening at a town hall at Saint Anselm College’s New Hampshire Institute of Politics. Word that Christie would be declaring his candidacy for president for the second time came a day after his allies launched a super PAC to support the former governor’s 2024 presidential campaign. The formation of...

    It is probably a surprise to Donald Trump that so many people have reacted negatively to his recent very personal attack on Kayleigh McEnany. The most loyal of Trump supporters aren’t bothered but many regular voters are disgusted with his attack on a woman that is viewed by a lot of conservatives as America’s sweetheart. Kayleigh got on the wrong side of Trump’s ego. He decided to try to make her pay for that on social media. Trump thinks Kayleigh got his poll number wrong in a recent poll, not reflecting a large enough lead for his ego, so he...

    Former President Donald Trump has lost a 2024 endorsement to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over his attack on Kayleigh McEnany. Trump lashed out at McEnany, his administration's White House press secretary, in a Truth Social post on Tuesday. The former president called McEnany "milktoast"—an apparent misspelling of "milquetoast," an insult for a timid or bland person—and insulted her current job as a Fox News host after she suggested during a broadcast earlier in the day that DeSantis could be "closing the gap" in Iowa's GOP primary race. On Thursday, James Spillane, a New Hampshire Republican state representative, told NHJournal that...

    A New Hampshire state representative has rescinded her endorsement of Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) in the race for the Republican presidential nomination and now supports former President Donald Trump. State Rep. Sandra Panek (R) announced her decision to switch her support on Thursday following DeSantis’s campaign launch on Wednesday. “After being less than impressed with Ron DeSantis’s official announcement last night, I am hereby switching my endorsement to President Donald J. Trump,” Panek said in a press release email from the Trump campaign. “We can’t expect someone to run the country if they can’t properly run their own campaign launch.”...

    Democrats have been left scrambling to avoid a potential embarrassment for President Joe Biden in New Hampshire in 2024 after the Democratic National Committee approved a calendar that gave the state's slot to South Carolina. The move puts New Hampshire in a shared second slot on the primary calendar with Nevada, but it could actually keep Biden's name off the ballot. New Hampshire has a state law that requires it to have its primary a week before the rest of the country. With a Republican-led state legislature and governor, changing the state law to appease Democrats is not likely. “We...

    Former Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is preparing to announce his entrance into the 2024 GOP presidential race “in the coming days,” according to a report. The report came from “New Hampshire Today” host Chris Ryan on Thursday, who cited “multiple sources with direct knowledge.” The report notes that the Christie campaign will focus on New Hampshire and have the “financial backing” of billionaire New York Mets owner Steve Cohen. Hedge fund founder Anthony Scaramucci, who briefly served in the Trump administration, said Wednesday that he plans to back Christie in the GOP primary and also expects Cohen and...

    NASHUA, N.H. — Top Democrats are scrambling for ways to avoid a catastrophe in New Hampshire in which Joe Biden may not appear on the primary ballot, ceding the first unofficial contest of 2024 to a fringe candidate. The bizarre predicament is one of the president’s own making, after he pushed for changes to the party’s presidential nominating calendar that stripped the Granite State of its first-in-the-nation primary. The move was designed to reward South Carolina, which catapulted Biden to the nomination in 2020. But there’s a state law requiring New Hampshire’s contest be held a week before any others,...

    In late April, Juliet Harvey-Bolia, a Republican New Hampshire state representative, was one of dozens of elected officials whose endorsements former President Donald Trump announced at a packed rally in Manchester. On Tuesday, officials at Never Back Down, the super PAC backing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, said Harvey-Bolia is throwing her support to their guy. She is one of four New Hampshire legislators — the others are Reps. Brian Cole, Lisa Smart and Debra DiSimone — whom Never Back Down identified as flipping from Trump to DeSantis as it rolled out endorsements from 51 lawmakers in the state who signed...

    rnor of New Hampshire, Chris Sununu, said it was “embarrassing” that Republican voters from his state laughed and applauded when Donald Trump mocked E Jean Carroll during a CNN town hall this week. Sununu may yet have to court such voters in a presidential run of his own. Nonetheless, the governor said, the town hall audience’s behavior “doesn’t shine a positive light on New Hampshire”. In New York on Tuesday, a jury in a civil case found Trump liable for sexual battery and defamation regarding a 1996 assault in a New York department store changing room which Carroll described in...

    New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) has dropped his opposition to legalizing marijuana in the state, putting forward a pathway for a legalization bill to be approved. In a Medium post Friday, Sununu said that he felt other states “rushed to legalize marijuana” with “little guardrails,” leading to the turning of “the culture and fabric of their state,” and that, “in the past, I said now is not the time to legalize marijuana.” But with New Hampshire being “the only state in New England” not to allow recreational marijuana use — and with a majority of its citizens supporting legalization...

    DES MOINES, Iowa – The super PAC promoting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis plans to have dozens of staff in place in the first 18 states on the Republican presidential primary calendar in the coming weeks, a move indicating that his expected 2024 announcement is drawing closer. The plans, shared with The Associated Press, are part of the group Never Back Down's strategy to begin political organizing for DeSantis all the way through Super Tuesday on March 5 and point to a novel approach the super PAC is attempting ahead of a likely DeSantis run. In Iowa, where the leadoff GOP...

    "He is a loser ... and as a four-time winning Republican, I am tired of losing." New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu called out Donald Trump Wednesday night after the former Republican president’s controversial CNN town hall in the Granite State. It’s not the first time Sununu has taken aim at Trump. The Republican governor has often criticized the former president, calling him “crazy” and stating he has no logical pathway to the presidency. Hours after Trump’s CNN town hall, Sununu ripped into him again

    Former President Donald Trump steamrolled CNN’s Kaitlan Collins during Wednesday’s Town Hall event in New Hampshire, dismissing her politically biased and outdated questions, effectively reducing her role as the moderator by speaking directly to the audience about the “gotcha” topics a visibly irritated Collins continually posed throughout the night. The highly anticipated town hall event, teased by Trump, proved to bode well for the former president, despite Collins’ attempt to begin the town hall event with a series of contentious topics and arguably outdated leftist narratives — from the 2020 election results to January 6 to accusations in the E....

    Police raised concerns, so lawmakers moved forward with a less-restrictive proposal — and now that version of the bill is likely to be defeated CONCORD, N.H. — An effort to restrict the use of no-knock warrants in New Hampshire is likely to fail this week, after a committee advised the full Senate to reject the proposal despite its bipartisan popularity in the House. The original version of House Bill 135 had called for a complete ban on no-knock warrants, which allow police to enter a property without knocking and announcing their presence in advance. But lawmakers watered down their proposal...
