Trump wins Michigan Republican presidential primary
Former President Donald Trump’s winning streak continued as he won the Michigan Republican presidential primary on Tuesday.
Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who has failed to defeat Trump in any of the Republican presidential nominating contests so far, remained in the race even after losing her home state to Trump last week. She has said that she has “no interest in a third-party candidacy.”
As Trump continues to rack up wins, he appears to be poised to easily clinch the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
“Another MASSIVE win! Congratulations President Trump on tonight’s victory in Michigan. Another step closer to MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. (P.S. Nikki, it’s time to DROP OUT!),” GOP Rep. Ronny Jackson of Texas tweeted.
“Congratulations to President Trump for a decisive win in the Michigan primary. I’m hoping that sooner rather than later the Republican presidential primary will end so we can unite with President Trump as our nominee. He is the candidate who will defeat Joe Biden in the Fall and will get America back on track quickly. It is clear to me that the Republican Party faithful are behind President Trump in all corners of the country. It’s time to move on to the general election,” Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina stated in a post on X.
Ryan Binkley, a little-known candidate who failed to gain traction during the GOP nominating contest, announced on Tuesday that he was suspending his campaign and backing Trump. “Today, I am suspending my campaign for the Presidency of the United States of America and offering my endorsement and unwavering support for President Trump,” Binkley noted in social media posts.
On the other side of the political aisle, President Joe Biden easily won in the Michigan Democratic presidential primary.
Democratic Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota, who, according to the results so far, performed worse than the “uncommitted” option, tweeted. “If you resent me for the audacity to challenge Joe Biden, at least you’ll appreciate how relatively strong I’m making him look among primary voters!”
