Trump won the Nevada Republican primary

As of: February 9, 2024 8:43 am

His victory in Nevada was expected: Donald Trump won the Republican primary – where he won 26 delegate votes. His last major challenger was not on the ballot.

Former US President Donald Trump has won the Nevada primary in the race for the Republican nomination for the White House. There he got 26 representative votes.

His victory was expected. Trump's last serious challenger, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, dismissed the caucus as rigged. He already contested another primary in Nevada on Tuesday. However, as representative votes were not cast, this vote had only symbolic value.

Although Trump's name was not on the ballot in this primary, Haley failed to receive a majority of the vote. Instead, the majority of voters chose the “none of these candidates” option.

Haley thinks he has a chance at South Carolina

This means that, unlike in other states, Republicans in Nevada won two different votes on two different days this year.

The next Republican primary for both candidates is scheduled for February 24 in South Carolina. Although Trump clearly dominates the race, Haley is determined to compete in her home state and plans several campaign appearances there in the coming weeks.

The former president's influence remains unbroken

Despite four criminal cases pending against him, Trump is considered the clear favorite for the Republican nomination. His influence in the party remains unbroken.

If he wins the party's internal primaries, Republicans can formally select him as their nominee at the party's convention in the summer. The actual presidential election takes place in early November. Everything now points to a new fight between Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, who wants to defend his office.
