NEW YORK – Former television personality Judge Judith Sheindlin, known as Judge Judy, has publicly endorsed Nikki Haley for the 2024 presidential race. Sheindlin praised Haley’s intelligence, executive experience, and successful tenure as governor, as well as her international reputation as Ambassador to the United Nations. In response, Haley expressed gratitude for Sheindlin’s support, describing her as a no-nonsense and respected figure.
Haley, a former South Carolina governor and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations under the Trump administration, has recently gained momentum in the polls. She is currently in second place behind former President Donald Trump in Iowa and New Hampshire, which hold the first primary elections in the United States.
Sheindlin is widely recognized for her long-running show, “Judge Judy,” where she became known for her witty comebacks and fair approach to justice. She now presides as a judge on Amazon Freevee’s “Judy Justice,” which has attracted over 150 million viewers in the past two years.
Haley participated in a Fox News town hall on Monday, using the platform to highlight her foreign policy experience and criticize President Joe Biden’s policies. She also addressed accusations from her opponents, Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who claim she holds liberal views on issues such as illegal immigration and Hillary Clinton.
Haley affirmed that she will defeat Trump “fair and square” in the presidential race, asserting that the Supreme Court should not remove him from the ballot. She emphasized her commitment to ensuring a fair democratic process, without relying on assistance from Democrats in Colorado and other states.
The Iowa caucuses, the first major electoral event of the 2024 election cycle, are scheduled for January 15th. As Haley continues to gain support and prominence, she aims to solidify her position as a top contender for the Republican nomination.
