Trump Projected to Win Michigan Republican Primary: AP

by Ben Whedon


Former President Donald Trump decidedly won the Michigan Republican primary on Tuesday evening, notching another win in a string of consecutive primary victories as he appears poised to claim the party nomination.

The Associated Press projected Trump to win the contest with 65.0% of the vote as of press time. Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley placed second with 30.9%, while “uncommitted” votes placed third with 2.0%. Pastor Ryan Binkley earned 0.2%.

Ahead of the contest, Binkley withdrew from the race and endorsed Trump. He had not qualified for any of the Republican National Committee’s primary debates and struggled to gain traction as a candidate despite spending millions of his own money on his campaign. Other candidates who withdrew also appeared on the ballot, including Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis, who earned 1.1%.

The Tuesday contest will only see the party allocate 16 of the state’s 55 delegates while the remainder will be up for grabs during the March 2 party convention, according to the New York Times.

Haley has remained in the race despite losing her home state of South Carolina to Trump over the weekend. Prior to that contest, she stated she would stay in the primary “until the American people close the door.”
