The race for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination pivots to New Hampshire. Follow live updates

A day after Donald Trump won the Iowa caucuses, the race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination has moved to New Hampshire.

Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley are holding events in the GOP’s first state on Tuesday, hoping to capitalize on their appearances in Iowa. Trump won by more than 30 percentage points, while DeSantis narrowly edged Haley for second place.

Disappointing finishes in Iowa by biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy and former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson led to their exit from the race.

Haley says she won’t debate DeSantis in New Hampshire unless Trump participates

GREENVILLE, S.C. – On his way to the next vote in New Hampshire, DeSantis made a stop in South Carolina to emphasize that he plans to run and defeat Haley in her home state.

He asked the hundreds of people in a converted airplane hangar in Greenville if any of them could name an accomplishment during Haley’s six years as governor. No hands went up. DeSantis said there would have been enough hands in Florida.

He later told reporters that the door is still open for someone who can beat Trump for the nomination and that his second-place finish shows he is that choice.

β€œHalf the people wanted someone else,” DeSantis said, referring to the 51% of the vote Trump captured in Iowa.

He elaborated on Haley, saying she was the reason he held a Fox News debate with California’s Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom last year.

β€œI needed practice debating someone almost as liberal as Nikki Haley,” DeSantis said.

NEW YORK β€” Trump has a campaign rally scheduled for later Tuesday in New Hampshire, but he spent the first part of the day in a New York courtroom for the penalty phase of a civil defamation lawsuit over a columnist’s claims that he had sexually assaulted him decades earlier.

After several dozen potential jurors were sworn in, Trump shook his head as the judge described the case in general terms, explaining that for the purposes of the trial, it had already been determined that Trump had sexually assaulted columnist E. Jean Carroll.

In May, another jury awarded Carroll $5 million after concluding that Trump sexually assaulted her in a department store dressing room in 1996, then defamed her in 2022 by claiming she made it up after publicly saying it revealed in a 2019 memoir.

He was not required to attend on Tuesday and was not present at the first trial.
