As expected, Donald Trump also won the Republican primaries in Nevada and the Virgin Islands on Thursday. This makes it increasingly likely that he will face Joe Biden in the US presidential election in November.
Trump won all 26 delegates, or electoral votes, in Nevada. He needs 1,215 delegates to officially win the nomination on behalf of the Republicans. It could reach this number as early as March.
The Nevada primary is a complicated story. It actually happened on Tuesday Basic The place is regulated by the state itself. These elections were not recognized by the Republican Party, which itself held elections on Thursday gathering organized. Candidate who meets Basic Participants will be excluded by party from gathering.
Trump did not participate on Tuesday BasicBut his rival Nikki Haley does. Even without the former president on the ballot, she was defeated there. Haley received only 30% of the votes. More than 60 percent went to “none of these candidates.”
Both Trump and Haley participated in the Virgin Islands. Trump won there with 74 percent of the vote, the equivalent of four electoral votes. Haley got a zero.
The next Republican primary is scheduled for February 24 in Haley's home state of South Carolina. Trump hopes to defeat her there, too.
