In the end, it wasn’t even close…
Former President Donald Trump has been declared the winner of the New Hampshire primary.
Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley celebrated a symbolic victory in New Hampshire early Tuesday morning. Haley won all six votes in Dixville Notch, which kicked off the first-in-the-nation primary vote just past midnight.
The remaining voters headed to the polls later on Tuesday.
The final tracking poll before Tuesday’s primary showed Trump with a 22-point lead over Haley — his largest yet.
While addressing a crowd of supporters Trump tore into Haley after his win in New Hampshire.
“I have to tell you — it was very interesting, because I said, ‘Wow what a great victory,’ but then somebody ran up to the stage all dressed up nicely when it was at 7, but now I just walked up, and it was at 14,” Trump said, mocking Haley for delivering remarks to supporters after the race was called in his favor.
“Let’s not have somebody take a victory when she had a very bad night. She had a very bad night,” Trump said.
Later, he added that he couldn’t let his former United Nations ambassador “get away with bullshit.”
“But I felt I should do this, because I find in life, you can’t let people get away with bullshit,” he said. “You can’t. And when I watched her in the fancy dress … I said, ‘What’s she doing?’ We won. And she did the same thing last week.”
