Donald Trump Secures Nevada GOP Caucuses with a Decisive Victory

Donald Trump Wins Nevada GOP Caucuses in Blowout Fashion

Former President Donald Trump secured a resounding victory in the Nevada Republican Caucuses on Thursday night, further solidifying his path towards the Republican presidential nomination.

Trump, who was one of two candidates on the caucus ballot alongside pastor Ryan Binkley, dominated the competition with 96.4 percent of the vote, according to NBC News projections. Binkley trailed far behind with only 3.6 percent of the vote, with one percent of precincts reporting.

Notably absent from the caucus ballot was former Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC), Trump’s remaining significant opponent. Haley opted to participate in the state-run primary earlier in the week, where she faced a disappointing outcome, securing only 30.8 percent of the vote compared to 62.9 percent for the option “None of these candidates.”

Former Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), both of whom have withdrawn from the presidential race, were also listed on the primary ballot, as noted by the Nevada Republican Party.

Several candidates who initially qualified for the caucus ballot, including Govs. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Doug Burgum (R-ND), entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, and former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), were removed after suspending their campaigns. Notably, all except Christie have expressed their support for Trump.

Trump’s victory in Nevada follows his success in the Virgin Islands Republican Caucuses earlier in the day, where he secured all delegates with nearly 75% of the vote. Taking to Truth Social, Trump expressed gratitude for the support, highlighting the significance of the victories for himself, the Republican Party, and democracy.

Accompanied by a post from Dan Scavino Jr., Trump celebrated his arrival in Las Vegas, urging supporters to stay in line and participate in the caucuses.
