Former President Donald Trump may be able to secure the Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday, pending the results of the four GOP voting contests in Georgia, Washington, Mississippi, and Hawaii. Georgia, Mississippi, and Washington are holding primaries, while Hawaii is conducting caucuses.

Trump’s main rival, former United Nations Ambassador Gov. Nikki Haley, dropped out of the White House race after the Super Tuesday primaries. Despite not debating any primary opponents, Trump has dominated the Republican field, consistently leading in early-state polling.

As Trump enters the general election phase, he faces 91 felony charges across four criminal cases. His first trial is set to begin on March 25 in New York, where he faces 34 charges related to alleged “hush money” payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential election.

Trump also faces state criminal charges in Georgia for alleged interference in the 2020 presidential election, as well as federal charges in Washington, D.C. Additionally, he faces federal charges in Florida regarding his handling of classified documents after his presidency.

In Tuesday’s four contests, a total of 161 GOP delegates are at stake. Trump currently has over 1,075 delegates, according to CBS News estimates, and is nearing the 1,215 delegates needed for the nomination.

If Trump secures the nomination, he would be the first Republican in history to do so three consecutive times. While Richard Nixon won the GOP nomination three times, they were not consecutive. Georgia has 59 delegates, Mississippi has 40, Washington has 43, and Hawaii’s caucus offers 19 delegates.
