One of the biggest stars on television has declared who she’ll be voting for in the upcoming election.  

Judy Sheindlin, known as Judge Judy, has endorsed former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley for president. 

Fox News reports:

“I’m proud to endorse Nikki Haley because she is whip smart, has executive credentials and was a superb governor,” Sheindlin said in a statement. “She has international gravitas as Ambassador to the United Nations. She is principled, measured and has that elusive quality of real common sense. I truly think she can restore America and believe she is the future of this great nation.”

“Judge Judy is a no-nonsense lady who has earned the respect of millions of Americans from her courtroom by being thoughtful, fair, and honest. I’m honored to have her support,” Haley said in a press release. 

For 25 years, Sheindlin starred on the beloved show “Judge Judy,” where her witty retorts in the courtroom earned her millions of dedicated fans. Instead of stepping away from television for good, she is now the presiding judge on Amazon Freevee’s “Judy Justice,” which became Freevee’s No. 1 original show with more than 150 million viewers over the past two years.

Sheindlin is a graduate of New York Law School, was appointed to the bench in New York City’s Family Court in 1982 and became the Supervising Judge of the Manhattan Court in 1986. 

Nikki Haley appears to be peaking at the right time, at least in New Hampshire. CNN noted that “Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has trimmed former President Donald Trump’s lead in the Republican primary race in New Hampshire to single digits, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire.

Trump still holds a meaningful lead in the poll, with the backing of 39% of likely Republican primary voters in New Hampshire compared to Haley’s 32%. The rest of the field lags far behind in the poll, with former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 12%, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy at 8%, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at 5% and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson at less than 1%.

Support for Haley has risen 12 percentage points since the last CNN/UNH poll in November, continuing an upward trajectory that began last summer, while her opponents –- including Trump – have seen their numbers remain stable or tick slightly downward since autumn.”

Haley will be taking on Ron DeSantis in a debate on January 10 in Iowa. Former President Donald Trump, who has refused to debate his challengers, will host counterprogramming on Fox News.
