Haley has been holding a slew of town halls and other campaign events in New Hampshire, as well as Iowa – whose caucuses lead off the GOP nominating calendar – and her home state of South Carolina, which holds the first southern primary.

Haley stands in second place to Trump in the latest polls in South Carolina and has seen her support edge up in the most recent surveys in Iowa.

Trump back to N.H.

The former president returns to New Hampshire on Monday for his first visit in two months.

Trump will headline a campaign event at the Kingswood Art Center in Wolfeboro. Don’t be surprised if the former president makes another stop after his event in Wolfeboro.

It’s Trump’s first trip back to New Hampshire since headlining an event at Windham’s high school on Aug. 8.

While the former president hasn’t spent nearly as much time in the Granite State compared to his rivals for the GOP nomination, Trump campaign senior adviser in New Hampshire Steve Stepanek tells this reporter their get-out-the-vote efforts are “in really good shape.”

“We are miles ahead of everyone else,” Stepanek, a former state representative and 2016 Trump campaign co-chair in New Hampshire who went on to chair the NHGOP until early this year, touted. “We’ve been doing a ton of door knocking, a ton of phone calls….Getting a huge response, especially on the doors.”

The Trump campaign announced their New Hampshire grassroots leadership team in late June. It included 10 county chairs, 4 city chairs, and over 200 town chairs.

Stepanek highlighted that the campaign’s been doing “regularly organized flag waves and car caravans.”

“We’ll over 10,000 yard signs have been handed out, to be stuck in the ground outside somebody’s house,” he added. “We’ve been doing all the county fairs, all the old home days….we’ve been just hammering it as far as grassroots is concerned.”
