(FixThisNation.com) – On Wednesday, the Republican presidential candidate argued that she would not be withdrawing from the 2024 Republican primary race despite her recent consecutive losses to former president Donald Trump in the caucus and the first-in-the-nation primary race. 

On Wednesday, New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) responded to Ronna McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC) who had argued that Haley needed to drop out of the race by stating that the Republican party needed to hear from voters in all of the states before deciding which nominee to unite behind. 

During an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Sununu argued that they should not be calling the race yet as there are 40 states to go. He added that the head of the GOP was arguing that they did not want to hear from all the voters in order states because the race was “getting too close.” He then pointed out that the decision needed to be made by Republican voters and not by Washington D.C. elites. 

On Tuesday, The Hill/Decision Desk HQ had projected that Trump would be winning the primary with 54.5 percent of the vote. Haley, who is the only other Republican candidate left in the race, ended up in second place having received the support of 43.4 percent of the vote.

Last year, Sununu backed Haley’s presidential campaign and has since acted as an important surrogate in his state. He argued that despite Haley coming second in New Hampshire he was still confident about the momentum she was gaining as she headed in the primary in her home state.
