TV Newsers Descend on New Hampshire to Cover State’s GOP Primary

By A.J. Katz 

The 2024 New Hampshire Republican primary will convene take place on Tuesday, Jan. 23. Polls show former President Donald Trump sitting in first place in the Granite State, with former U.N. ambassador/South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley on his heels. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was projected to finish third in New Hampshire, but officially suspended his 2024 presidential campaign on Sunday, right before the primary. This New Hampshire Republican primary is a must-win for Haley if she wants any shot at winning the GOP nomination. She finished third in the Iowa Caucuses behind Trump and DeSantis.

As one might expect, the national television news outlets are going all in on coverage of the event, dispatching correspondents and anchors alike.
