Nikki Haley won her first Republican primary contest of the 2024 election on Sunday in Washington, D.C. The win earned her 19 delegates and the title of the first woman to win a Republican primary in history.

Haley won 62 percent of the vote compared to Trump’s 33 percent. A mere 2,035 voters participated in the primary contest which will likely represent the only win for the former South Carolina governor heading into Super Tuesday (North Dakota holds their GOP primary today).

The former President had just come off a clean sweep of GOP primaries in Idaho, Michigan, and Missouri on Saturday. He is expected to sweep once again on Super Tuesday when 15 more states are up for grabs.

“It’s not surprising that Republicans closest to Washington dysfunction are rejecting Donald Trump and all his chaos,” Haley spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas said in a statement.

With Super Tuesday fast approaching, Trump sits at 244 delegates to Haley’s 43 with 1,215 needed for the GOP nomination. 854 delegates will be at stake on March 5th.

Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for President, seemingly took the loss to Haley in stride. In fact, his campaign had a blast in responding to the news.

“Tonight’s results in Washington D.C. reaffirm the object of President Trump’s campaign — he will drain the swamp and put America first,” Karoline Leavitt, Trump’s Campaign Press Secretary said in a statement.

“While Nikki has been soundly rejected throughout the rest of America, she was just crowned Queen of the Swamp by the lobbyists and DC insiders that want to protect the failed status quo,” Leavitt added. “The swamp has claimed their queen.”

There aren’t too many political pundits who think Nikki Haley’s win in Washington, D.C. will change the momentum of the race. The fact that Trump’s campaign has already turned it into a liability for her is evidence of that.

“President Trump will fight for every American who is being let down by these very DC insiders and devastated by Joe Biden’s failures,” added Leavitt.

Haley Celebrates The Swamp Victory

Nikki Haley celebrated her GOP primary victory in Washington, D.C. in a post on the X social media platform.

“Let’s do it. Thank you, DC!” she wrote. “We fight for every inch.”

A moral victory in the cesspool of American politics is, most assuredly, little more than an inch in Haley’s flailing campaign.

Trump, meanwhile, took to his own social media platform to also celebrate Haley’s win, using one of his nicknames for her in the process.

“I purposely stayed away from the D.C. Vote because it is the ‘Swamp,’ with very few delegates, and no upside,” Trump maintains. “Birdbrain spent all of her time, money and effort there.”

Trump, in a separate post, urged Republican voters to deliver a resounding victory over Nikki Haley on Super Tuesday and on March 12th.

“Each of you is going to have the opportunity to help us bring this primary to a quick, victorious, and decisive end,” he said.

Haley has vowed to stay in the race “as long as we are competitive.”
