The Donald Trump super PAC MAGA Inc. has remained radio silent in New Hampshire since June. But that will all change on Tuesday when the organization attacks Haley again, making it their first attack on a politician in New Hampshire.
This 30-second commercial attacks Haley’s tax policy by showing her endorsing a gas tax hike in South Carolina and calling her “high-tax Haley.”
Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) did criticize the outgoing governor at the second GOP debate on the topic of South Carolina’s gas tax. “I fought the gas tax in South Carolina multiple times against the establishment,” she said in response, recalling how she had pushed for a reduction in the state’s income tax in response to a plan to increase the gas tax.
Even though Trump is currently leading the GOP primary in New Hampshire, according to recent polls, the latest spot demonstrates that his supporters are recognizing Haley’s ascent in the Granite State. The campaign for Haley is banking on her performance in New Hampshire to propel her to South Carolina, her home state, where she aspires to unseat Trump.
“Two days ago, Donald Trump denied our surge in New Hampshire existed,” Haley said on social media in response to an NBC News story Monday night that MAGA Inc. would be targeting her. Currently, he is promoting something nasty about me. Someone is starting to feel anxious. Let’s do it!
