Nikki Haley Momentarily Interrupts Trump Domination With DC GOP Primary Win



Nikki Haley, the former Governor of South Carolina, clinched victory in the Republican presidential nomination race on Sunday by emerging as the winner of the primary in Washington, DC. 

The Associated Press declared the outcome of the race early.

Nevertheless, Haley’s triumph is not expected to change the overall trajectory of the competition, which remains largely influenced by Donald Trump.

After a three-day voting period, polls closed at 7 p.m. Eastern on Sunday for the Washington primary. With only 19 delegates up for grabs, Haley was in a favorable position to possibly surpass Trump.

Haley’s first win momentarily interrupts Donald Trump’s domination of the GOP voting contests, although the former president is expected to secure several hundred more delegates in the upcoming Super Tuesday races this week.

Washington is recognized as one of the most heavily Democratic jurisdictions in the nation, boasting approximately 23,000 registered Republicans within the city. 

In the 2020 general election, Democrat Joe Biden secured victory in the district, capturing an overwhelming 92% of the vote.

Shortly after Haley’s victory, Trump issued a statement sarcastically congratulating her, remarking that she had been named “Queen of the Swamp by the lobbyists and DC insiders that want to protect the failed status quo.”

Even after facing initial setbacks, Haley has refrained from specifying any particular primary where she feels assured of victory. Despite experiencing a defeat in her home state of South Carolina last week, Haley has remained resolute in her belief that voters in subsequent locations deserve an alternative to Trump, despite his overwhelming dominance thus far in the campaign.

Haley has only committed to stay in the race up until Super Tuesday.
