New Hampshire Republicans switch from DeSantis to Trump after disastrous Twitter post
A New Hampshire representative is switching her allegiance from Ron DeSantis to Donald Trump after Florida's governor announced the launch of a glitch-ridden presidential campaign.
Earlier this month, Rep. Sandra Panek was added to a list of more than 50 Granite State lawmakers who endorsed Florida's governor for president.
"After being underwhelmed by Ron DeSantis' official statement last night, I hereby turn my support to President Donald J. Trump," Ms. Panek said in a statement.
"We can't expect someone to run the country if they can't run their campaigns properly.
"By 2024, the stakes are too high to take a chance on someone as unreliable as DeSantis - we need a proven winner like President Trump to take back the White House and make America great again."

Trump to return to Georgia ahead of possible indictment in 2020 election
Donald Trump will speak at the 2023 Georgia Republican state convention on June 10.
Before the former president returns to the state, a Fulton County grand jury is likely to investigate whether he and others violated the law in trying to overturn his 2020 defeat in the state.
District Attorney Fani Willis said any charges were likely to be filed in August after she first told local law enforcement she intended to announce a charging decision between July 11 and Sept. 1.
She has since written to County Superior Court Chief Judge Ural Granville on Thursday, saying she plans to have most of her staff work remotely for most of the first three weeks of August. Ms. Willis asked the judge not to schedule trials and in-person hearings during that time, which appears to narrow the window.

Club for Growth ad hits Trump on Social Security
The Growth Club, a conservative advocacy group, attacked Donald Trump's Social Security program in an ad released Thursday.
"Trump's social security plan is not a practice swing," says the voiceover, along with footage of the former president golfing. "His plan, like Joe Biden's, would automatically cut benefits for seniors by 23% over 10 years or less, putting your retirement in a bind."
"For Donald Trump, it's a matter of course," it continued. "If Trump's plan drains 23% of their savings, another plan will rip people out of their income, people who work for it and don't get paid. Tell Donald Trump, stop cheating seniors."
The golf theme of the ad is set for this weekend's LIV Golf Tournament at Trump National Golf Club in Washington, D.C.
