Another New Hampshire GOP state representative has pulled his endorsement of former President Trump and is throwing his support to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Rep. Jordan Ulery (R-Hudson), who was first elected to the New Hampshire House in 2004, endorsed Trump back in April. Now he is on Team DeSantis.
“I am proud to endorse Ron DeSantis for president. He is the conservative candidate our party needs to put the focus back on the issues and unify us with a shared vision of reversing our nation’s decline, which starts with sending Joe Biden back to his basement,” Ulery said. “From limiting government to slaying the bureaucratic state in D.C. to bringing energy prices down for families, Ron DeSantis is the candidate who will get things done for New Hampshire families and the American people.”
The DeSantis campaign also released another list of endorsements from former and current legislators, including Rep. Joe Sweeney (R-Salem) and Goffstown school board member Jared Talbot.
“With these additional nine endorsements, DeSantis now boasts support from 70 New Hampshire officials,” the DeSantis campaign said in a statement.
Ulery is the latest GOP state legislator to jump ship from Trump and back DeSantis. Rep. James Spillane (R-Deerfield) appeared on stage with Trump at the Doubletree in Manchester on April 27 when the former president announced that more than 50 GOP House members had endorsed his candidacy, including Ulery. But after Trump insulted his former spokesperson, Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany, Spillane announced he could “no longer continue endorsing former President Trump.”
National spokeswoman Carly Atchison said DeSantis has been to New Hampshire four times and has more trips coming up, including speaking at the Nashua Steak Out GOP fundraiser.
“The momentum in New Hampshire to elect Ron DeSantis as our next president is building, and he is just getting started. Ron DeSantis understands everything is earned in this process and looks forward to being back in the Granite State very soon.”
