As expected, former US President Donald Trump won the Republican primary elections in the US state of Nevada, CNN and NBC News reported unanimously late Thursday evening (local time), citing their own predictions. . Trump's last serious challenger, Nikki Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, actually ran for reelection on Tuesday — but received fewer votes than the “no candidates mentioned” option.
Trump was not on the ballot Tuesday because, unlike other states, Nevada Republicans had two different votes on two different days this year. The backdrop is disagreement over how the state's primaries should be conducted. Thus, it was a classic primary on Tuesday, with Haley on the ballot and no Trump. However, there were no votes for delegates to win the party's nominating convention. This was followed by the so-called election rally on Thursday. In this vote, Trump was nominated for election, but not Haley. Unlike Tuesday, the caucus was all about delegate votes.
The next Republican primary is now scheduled to be held at the same time on February 24 in South Carolina. Although Trump clearly dominates the race, Haley remains committed to running in her home state, and is scheduled to make several campaign appearances there in the coming weeks.
Anyone who wants to become a presidential candidate in the United States must first win internal party primaries. Candidates are then formally selected at party conferences in the summer. The actual presidential elections take place at the beginning of November. Everything currently indicates that there will be a new duel between Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, who wants to defend his office. (DAP/EPA)
