A Republican Rep. Has Switched His Endorsement After Trump Slams McEnany

New Hampshire may be a small state, but it also holds the first primary in the Presidential nomination race. For that reason, it holds outsized importance for people looking to become the commander-in-chief. 

Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis would very much like to get off on the right foot by winning the state's primary. Trump's chances took a hit this week after he decided to go after his former Press Secretary, Kayleigh McEnany. 

Last month, when the 45th President held a rally in New Hampshire, State Rep. James Spillane was on the stage with him. But now Spillane is backing DeSantis. 

The Republican told the New Hampshire Journal, "I can no longer continue endorsing former President Trump. I am officially withdrawing my endorsement, as his most recent attack on Kayleigh McEnany is beyond comprehension and explanation. Against my deepest hopes that Trump had learned some measure of control, he has attacked those who have been his staunchest supporters with no regard for their loyalty."

While all the defections have not been over Kayleigh McEnany, Spillane is the 4th New Hampshire Republican to flip from Trump to DeSantis in the last few weeks. DeSantis may not have to do much now than to just hope that Trump keeps talking.
