Republican Nikki Haley earned a victory against President Donald J. Trump on Sunday in the Washington D.C. Republican Party primary. The challenger celebrated her first victory of the 2024 cycle.

“It’s not surprising that Republicans closest to Washington dysfunction are rejecting Donald Trump and all his chaos,” said Olivia Perez-Cubas, Haley’s national campaign spokeswoman.

Trump’s team quickly claimed Haley’s win in D.C. is nothing to be proud about.

“(Sunday night’s) results in Washington D.C. reaffirm the object of President Trump’s campaign — he will drain the swamp and put America first,” said Karoline Leavitt, Trump’s campaign press secretary. “While Nikki has been soundly rejected throughout the rest of America, she was just crowned Queen of the Swamp by the lobbyists and DC insiders that want to protect the failed status quo. The swamp has claimed their queen. President Trump will fight for every American who is being let down by these very DC insiders and devastated by Joe Biden’s failures.”
