Trump Wins Missouri’s Republican Caucuses; Haley Still Seeks Win

By Associated Press |

Donald Trump won Missouri’s Republican caucuses, one of three events Saturday that will award delegates for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination in the United States.

The former U.S. president, who is especially strong in caucuses, added to his delegate lead with that victory and made gains at a party convention in Michigan. Idaho was scheduled to hold its caucuses later Saturday. His last major rival, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, is still seeking her first election-season win.

There were no Democratic contests Saturday.

The next event on the Republican calendar is Sunday in the District of Columbia. Two days later is Super Tuesday, when 16 states and American Samoa will hold primaries on what will be the largest day of voting of the year outside of the November election. Trump is on track to lock up the nomination days later.

Michigan

Michigan Republicans at their convention in Grand Rapids began allocating 39 of the state’s 55 GOP presidential delegates. Trump won 33, with six yet to be allocated.

But a significant portion of the party’s grassroots force was skipping the gathering because of the lingering effects of a monthslong dispute over the party’s leadership.

Trump handily won Michigan’s primary this past Tuesday with 68% of the vote compared with Haley’s 27%.
