Trump Dominates North Dakota GOP Caucus, Solidifying Nomination Path

Trump Nabs North Dakota, No Problem

In a resounding victory on March 4th, former President Donald Trump further solidified his path to the Republican presidential nomination by triumphing in the North Dakota Republican caucus. Trump secured a commanding 84.6 percent of the vote, leaving his nearest competitor, Nikki Haley, far behind at 14.1 percent. This landslide victory granted Trump all 29 delegates from the Roughrider State.

Notably, North Dakota stands as the sole U.S. state where voter registration is not a prerequisite for casting a ballot, a fact that has sparked concerns over potential efforts to inflate anti-Trump votes, as seen in previous elections such as the New Hampshire primary.

Doug Burgum, the governor of North Dakota and a former GOP presidential candidate, threw his support behind Trump before the voting commenced. Burgum, who endorsed Trump in January, emphasized the need for a dramatic shift in direction from the policies of the Biden administration, expressing confidence in Trump’s ability to “make America great again.”

North Dakotans displayed unwavering confidence in Trump’s candidacy leading up to the caucus. Adam Hinz, a resident of the state, noted that many North Dakotans are eager for a leader who challenges the status quo, a quality for which Trump is widely recognized.

Looking ahead, Democrats in North Dakota are gearing up for their primary election scheduled for March 30, 2024.
