Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley secured her first endorsement for president from the upper chamber on Friday with Republican Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s support.

The senator, who was first elected to the upper chamber in 2002, previously suggested she’d vote for West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, who previously floated a third-party run, instead of both former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden. Murkowski endorsed Haley ahead of her home state’s Republican caucus on Super Tuesday, March 5, according to the press release.
