Judge Judy has spoken.
Judge Judy Sheindlin has made her stance clear regarding the outcome of the 2024 presidential race, throwing her support behind Nikki Haley. Known for her no-nonsense approach and celebrated career as a former prosecutor and family court judge, Sheindlin commended Haley’s intellect and track record as the governor of South Carolina and the US ambassador to the United Nations.
Expressing her endorsement for Haley in anticipation of the upcoming Iowa caucus, Sheindlin emphasized Haley’s sharp intelligence, executive experience, and exceptional governance in South Carolina. The celebrity judge highlighted Haley’s international standing gained through her role as the US ambassador to the United Nations, praising her principled and measured approach, along with a rare quality of genuine common sense. She firmly believes in Haley’s ability to restore and shape the future of the nation.
Haley, in response, expressed her gratitude for Sheindlin’s support, acknowledging the respect the renowned judge has earned from millions of Americans through her fair and thoughtful courtroom demeanor. This endorsement marks a significant moment for Haley’s campaign, with Sheindlin hoping for a more successful outcome than her 2020 endorsement of Michael Bloomberg.
While Judge Judy had previously advised Donald Trump during the 2016 election to moderate his rhetoric, Trump remains the frontrunner for the 2024 GOP nomination. However, Haley has experienced a notable surge in popularity, putting her in a competitive position with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, according to various national and Iowa polls. The upcoming debate in Des Moines, featuring Haley and DeSantis, is expected to be a pivotal moment in the campaign, followed by the New Hampshire primary on January 23, marking the next phase in the 2024 election journey.
