Trump Claims Victory In February Caucus

Daily Report January 25,2024

Following his resounding victory in Iowa and New Hampshire, former President Donald Trump has declared himself the winner of the Nevada Caucus coming up in February.

Trump, in a Truth Social post, declared himself the winner of the Nevada caucus after his only serious contender for the GOP presidential nominee, former Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC), opted not to contest in the state.

“WE JUST WON NEVADA!” the former president wrote on Truth.

Haley, who is under pressure to drop out of the race, opted to remain on the state’s primary ballot but will not partake in the February 8 caucuses, where all delegates will be at play, according to Breitbart News.

With former GOP contenders Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Billionaire businessman Vivek Ramaswamy out of the race, Haley’s decision means Trump is the only active candidate competing for delegates in Nevada. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the former president should win all the state’s 26 delegates, leaving him the presumptive winner.

Despite opting to back out of the Nevada caucus, Haley has refused to drop out of the GOP race entirely. Haley, who served as Trump’s U.N. ambassador, maintains she will remain in the race till the end.

“This race is far from over. There are dozens of states left to go, and the next one is my sweet state of South Carolina,” Haley said after her Tuesday loss in New Hampshire.

Haley’s decision to keep running despite her recent losses has put her on a collision course with Republicans, with Breitbart News politics editor Emma-Jo Morris calling her a surrogate for President Joe Biden.

“She has no path. It is over. So what is she doing now? She is just hitting the brakes, she is pumping brakes on proper consolidation around Trump and gearing fire toward Joe Biden. In essence, she is the best campaign surrogate for Joe Biden,” Morris told Fox News host Larry Kudlow.

Morris suggested that Haley is choosing to remain in the race because her mega-donors are funding the “delusion” that she can win.

“You have the LinkedIn founder. You have Koch. That’s why, as you said in your opening, she can’t talk about the open border because that’s not the issue that her string-pullers want to talk about,” Morris said. “So, she gets to live in this delusion that she has a chance. People are funding that delusion and enabling that delusion.”
