As the GOP primary continues to play out, the remaining candidates have no choice but to go after one another. It’s a simple yet effective strategy of narrowing down the competition and boosting their own chances of winning the nomination.
This explains why former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie keeps hitting former President Trump, along with other Republican candidates who he views as too scared to criticize the former president.
The same strategy explains why former UN ambassador Nikki Haley is increasingly clashing with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy. As of late, headbutting between DeSantis and Haley in particular has significantly escalated.
Here’s what’s going on
Weeks after DeSantis scored a campaign endorsement from Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, Haley secured her own endorsement from Americans For Prosperity. The latter came after Haley also landed in hot water for stating as president, she’d ensure Americans could only use social media by posting with their legal names attached to their accounts.
