Nikki Haley wins Vermont primary, beats Trump in surprise victory

Nikki Haley stuns with Vermont primary win, handing Super Tuesday defeat to Trump. Speculation grows about her campaign's future.

Nikki Haley has pulled off a surprising victory in Vermont's Republican primary, dealing a blow to former President Donald Trump on Super Tuesday. This win marks her largest victory in the primary season so far, following her success in Washington DC's nominating vote over the weekend. Despite this setback for Trump, he continues to dominate the Republican field and is on track to secure the party's nomination for the White House this month.

Leading up to Super Tuesday, there were limited opinion polls in Vermont, but those that were conducted showed Trump with a comfortable lead. However, Vermont has a reputation for its independent streak, with Republican Governor Phil Scott openly critical of Trump and endorsing Haley at a rally in Burlington on Sunday.

While Haley's victory in Vermont may not significantly impact the overall race, there has been speculation that she may soon drop out as Trump's last remaining challenger. The former South Carolina governor has not made a decision about her future yet, according to a statement to Fox News on Tuesday morning. With no events scheduled for Wednesday, the future of Haley's campaign remains uncertain.
