Trump’s win was a foregone conclusion, after the state Republican Party set up its caucus as the only race that would count for the purposes of determining the party’s nominee for president.
Former President Donald Trump clinched an expected and anticlimactic win in the Nevada Republican caucuses Thursday night, celebrating his victory at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino.
The Associated Press called the race for Trump shortly after the caucuses concluded Thursday. As of Friday morning, Trump had secured 99% of the vote.
Trump’s win was a foregone conclusion, after the state Republican Party set up its caucus as the only race that would count for the purposes of awarding delegates to determine the party’s nominee for president.
The move effectively rendered Tuesday’s primary election a pointless exercise with no tangible impact on the Republican race. Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who did not participate in Thursday’s caucuses and opted not to campaign in Nevada as a result, has described the state’s election as “sealed up, bought and paid for.”
Haley lost Tuesday’s state-run Republican primary—where Trump’s name did not appear on the ballot—to “None of these candidates.”
“I’d like to congratulate ‘None of the above,’” Trump said at his caucus watch party following the caucuses.
The former president is on track to face off against President Joe Biden in November’s general election.
