    Accused DUI killer Jamie Komoroski has been granted bail and will be released from jail less than a year after she plowed her car into a golf cart, destroying a newlywed couple’s lives, The Post has learned. Komoroski, 26, posted $150,000 bond on Friday and is expected to be released today and placed under house arrest in Charleston County, South Carolina, with a SCRAM ankle monitor, according to jail records and sources close to her case. The device is worn by “DUI and high-risk alcohol clients” as an ankle bracelet and tests the person’s sweat for alcohol 24/7, according to...

    And then there were two, officially. Longshot Republican presidential candidate Ryan Binkley suspended his campaign Tuesday after failing to crack 1% of the vote in any early state contest. The 56-year-old Texas pastor and businessman was the last GOP candidate in the race apart from Donald Trump and Nikki Haley, and threw his support behind the 45th president after announcing the end of his presidential bid.
  • Nicky Haley cannot possibly be this stupid.....

    I cannot believe that Tricky Nikki thinks she has any chance at all to be nominated or win the Presidency. She cannot be that stupid. If she had begun the process by taking positions to the right of Trump (the way that Vivek did and still does), she might have had a chance. Instead, she attacked Vivek and continues to attack Trump. Stupid moves.If she had used Trump's legal problems as a way to highlight how the Deep State has unconscionably attacked Trump and his family--instead of repeatedly attacking Trump himself about his legal problems—she would have found a receptive...
  • Nikki Haley supporters in Michigan want her to CONTINUE her campaign after 20-point loss in her home state so she can 'pick up the pieces' if Trump implodes: 'It's going to be hard for him to run for president from jail'

    It had been almost exactly 24 hours since Nikki Haley lost to Donald Trump in her home state of South Carolina by a 60-40 margin, and supporters who packed a Michigan hotel ballroom encouraged her to continue the fight so she can capitalize on any calamities that befall the frontrunner. ‘I think maybe she’s there in case something happens – she can pick up the pieces,’ said Dale Morgan, a retired chiropractor who came to see Haley after voting for Trump in 2020.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) was booed during former President Trump's remarks Saturday following his projected South Carolina primary victory. The big picture: It's not the first time the South Carolina senator, who has relatively low approval ratings in his state, has faced an unfriendly Trump crowd, particularly in his home state. Graham was met with boos from the crowd while appearing on stage beside Trump in Columbia after he was projected to beat former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. "I love him, he's a good man," Trump said. "We have a highly opinionated group of people here." Graham during his brief...

    COLUMBIA, South Carolina — Donald Trump defeated GOP rival Nikki Haley in the South Carolina primary Saturday night, securing yet another win for the former president. The race was called almost immediately after the polls closed at 7 p.m., with Trump securing all 29 winner-take-all state delegates. With some 65 percent of the vote in, Trump was up by roughly 20 points. “This was a little sooner than we anticipated. And even a bigger win than we anticipated,” Trump said to applause on stage at the state fairgrounds in Columbia moments after the victory. “I have never seen the Republican...

    Canada was the country of choice for all of the liberals who said they were leaving the country if Donald Trump was elected president. They followed through on that as well as they did at their promise to stop using Twitter if Elon Musk purchased it. (How are things over there on Threads?) NBC News reports that critics of Trump fear retribution if he's re-elected. NBC News decided to do a dozen interviews with people who share this fear. For those who have criticized former President Trump, fears of retribution grow as he campaigns for re-election. Interviews with a dozen...

    Donald Trump took another step towards a general election rematch with Joe Biden by decimating Nikki Haley in her home state in the South Carolina Republican primary. The result was called just seconds after polls closed in an embarrassing night for Haley who has vowed to stay in the race even as her path to the nomination rapidly closes. Trump declared his swift victory at his Election Day party held on the South Carolina State Fairgrounds in Columbia, saying with a smirk: 'This was a little sooner than we anticipated.' Trump's victory builds on the surging momentum he has built...

    Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley wasted $76.4 million in losing efforts to defeat former President Donald Trump in the first three GOP primary contests: Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina. The massive amount of money spent in the first three primaries of the 2024 cycle shows how strong Trump’s grassroots support is around the nation. The money spent also reveals the number of resources the Republican Party did not spend on defeating President Joe Biden. Leading up to Saturday’s election. Haley claimed she will not drop out of the race until Super Tuesday, which is March 5.

    Black leaders are condemning former President Trump’s recent comments about Black voters as “racist.” Speaking at the Black Conservative Federation (BCF) annual gala in South Carolina on Friday, Trump said his legal woes have earned him the support of Black voters around the country. “I got indicted for nothing, for something that is nothing,” Trump told the crowd. “And a lot of people said that’s why the Black people like me, because they have been hurt so badly and discriminated against, and they actually viewed me as I’m being discriminated against. It’s been pretty amazing but possibly, maybe, there’s something...

    GREENVILLE, S.C. – With the clock ticking toward Saturday's Republican presidential primary in South Carolina, a new poll indicates that former President Trump maintains a large double-digit lead over Nikki Haley, his last remaining major rival in the race for the GOP nomination. Trump, the commanding frontrunner for the Republican nomination as he makes his third straight bid for the White House, stands at 63% support among those likely to vote in Saturday's Republican presidential primary, according to a Suffolk University/USA Today survey released on Tuesday. Haley, a former two-term Palmetto State governor who later served as ambassador to the...

    Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) hit back at former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Monday after he said she needs help “to straighten out her life” last week, twisting the insult into a fundraising pitch. McCarthy went after Mace on Tuesday in a Capitol Hill visit. The pair have feuded after she was one of eight GOP members who voted to oust him from the Speakership in October. “I hope Nancy gets the help she needs, I really do,” McCarthy told reporters. “I just hope she gets the help to straighten out her life. I mean, she’s got a lot of...

    Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley said she will not drop out of the race regardless of the results of Saturday’s South Carolina primary, even as polls show her trailing former President Trump by a large margin in her home state. Haley told The Associated Press in an interview that she will remain in the race for the GOP nomination at least until Super Tuesday, March 5, when more than a dozen states will hold their primaries and caucuses. She noted that most states have not yet held their contests and many will vote shortly after South Carolina. “Ten days after...

    During Sunday’s broadcast of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) voiced his disapproval of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s leadership. Clyburn, a confidant of President Joe Biden, argued Netanyahu’s leadership had been bad for Israel. However, he would not go as far as to say Biden agreed with him about Netanyahu. “When it comes to Israel, should he stick with his position on Prime Minister Netanyahu or perhaps rethink that relationship?” “Face the Nation” host Robert Costa asked.
