President Trump continues to rack up endorsements in the great state of South Carolina with just a few days to go until this weekend’s GOP primary election. This week, his campaign announced that he had netted 15 endorsements from current and retired South Carolina Sheriffs.

The release noted, “President Trump has received 182 endorsements from South Carolina’s staunchest conservative leaders, along with more than 250 Grassroots Leaders who announced their support last June.”

The president’s staggering support in the Palmetto State is a solid reflection of his dominant position heading into the state primary on Saturday, February 24.

Via the Trump team, former Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon strongly laid out the case for Trump in South Carolina.

He explained, “We saw brazen lawlessness erupt right here in Charleston in 2020, and security at home requires fearless leaders like President Trump, not weak-kneed politicians like Nikki Haley who kowtows to her globalist Democrat donors.”

Cannon continued, “President Trump is headed for a historic win in South Carolina, and it’s time for Nikki Haley to step aside and unite behind the only candidate who will defeat Joe Biden and restore our nation in November.” 

In a new poll from Suffolk University/USA Today, Trump is holding a tremendous lead among “those very likely to vote in the state’s Republican primary,” where he has scored 63 percent of the prospective vote compared to South Carolina’s former Governor Nikki Haley’s 35 percent.

On Tuesday afternoon, Haley gave what appeared to be a bizarre “State of the Race” speech, where she vowed to stay in the race despite what is poised to be a massive Trump victory in her home state.

In fact, it does not appear that Haley is poised to win a single state in the GOP primary nomination race, based on the most recent primary polling data.
