Former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson backed former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s bid for president on Saturday.

Taking to X to announce his decision, Hutchinson repeated his call for the GOP to have a presidential nominee apart from former President Donald Trump. Contrary to beliefs that Trump will unite the country and pull it together after four years of President Joe Biden, Hutchinson believes Trump would do the opposite.

“Anyone who believes Donald Trump will unite this country has been asleep over the last 8 years. Trump intentionally tries to divide America and will continue to do so. Go @NikkiHaley in New Hampshire,” he wrote on X.

Hutchinson’s endorsement of Haley comes four days after he dropped his own bid for the Republican Party’s presidential ticket on Monday after a low performance during the Iowa caucuses on Monday. Scoring just 0.2% of the votes counted, he had come sixth position behind Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Haley, biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy and pastor Ryan Binkey.

Before he quit the GOP presidential race, the former governor’s campaign was largely built on his opposition to Trump.

By endorsing Haley, Hutchinson is throwing his support behind the candidate who is the closest to Trump in New Hampshire polls as the primary is one day away. A recent polling average by FiveThirtyEight shows Trump taking the lead in the state with 49.8% support while Haley trails him by close to 15 points at 34%. DeSantis’ polling in the state is far behind Haley’s at just about 5%.

Hutchinson’s endorsement of Haley gives her one of three endorsements among former political rivals since the Iowa caucuses. On the same night, Ramaswamy had also quit the race, backing Trump.

On Friday, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), who dropped his campaign in November, also announced his endorsement of Trump, calling for the consolidation of the GOP around the former president.
