The former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, who totally bombed in the Iowa caucuses before ducking out of the Republican primary race, is now throwing his support behind Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor. He’s off on a tirade against Donald Trump, claiming that Trump is deliberately causing division in America and that anyone who thinks otherwise must have been taking a snooze for the last eight years. Hutchinson clearly missed the memo that it was the socialist leftists who have been stirring up trouble!

Hutchinson’s endorsement comes just as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis abandoned his own campaign after getting trounced by President Trump in Iowa. DeSantis, who begrudgingly accepted that most Republican primary voters want to give Trump another shot, noted that, despite his squabbles with the former president, at least Trump is light years better than the current disaster, Joe Biden. DeSantis is sticking to his pledge to back the Republican nominee and believes Trump is the superior choice to Haley, who he calls a throwback to the old Republican Guard – you know, the same old stuff conservatives have been fighting against for years.
The list of anti-Haley contenders keeps growing, with other former presidential hopefuls like entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy and Senator Tim Scott embracing the former president. Even Senator Rand Paul is sounding the alarm about Haley, cautioning that any informed libertarian or conservative should steer clear of her.
