Trump Wins Michigan Republican Primary —  One Step Closer to Securing GOP Nomination

Former President Donald Trump won the Michigan Republican Primary Tuesday in another early contest, and additional delegates took his campaign one step closer to being able to win the primary. Shortly after the polls closed, the Associated Press projected the former president would win the primary shortly following the poll closing time on Tuesday evening.

With the win in Michigan, Trump has declared victory in every caucus and primary of the 2024 Republican presidential primary cycle.

Following the Super Tuesday primary contests, Trump will likely secure the GOP nomination by next week. He dominated the caucuses in Iowa, left New Hampshire with an overwhelming victory, swept caucuses in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Nevada, and won South Carolina with a “bigger win” than he expected.

Trump needs 1,215 delegates to win the nomination.

Dems and Republicans in Michigan hit the polls Tuesday

Both Democratic and Republican voters in Michigan hit the polls on Tuesday to vote in the state-run primaries.

GOP voters Tuesday had their choice between Trump, the overwhelming frontrunner, and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley — the only two Republicans in the race — and others who have also dropped out, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former governor of Arkansas Asa Hutchinson, former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie, and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy.

Shortly after the case was called in his favor, Trump said, “I just want to thank everybody. This was a great day,” said Trump while pointing to the autoworkers from the state and said Democrats “destroyed the autowork business,” but promised to “bring it all back to Michigan” if he is elected.

“I just want to thank everybody…the numbers are far greater than we even anticipated,” said Trump, and added he will “be doing a lot of campaigning over the next couple of months.”

“I can tell you this November cannot come fast enough,” said Trump. “We have the worst president in history — the most incompetent and the most corrupt president, and we can’t let this continue.”

“So that day, November 5th, and January 20th is when we take over,” said Trump, in reference to Election Day and Inauguration Day. “We’re going to make America great again, greater than ever before.”

Democrat voters additionally had the chance to vote in the primary and cast ballots for President Joe Biden and his challengers, Marianne Williamson and Representative Dean Phillips. The voters also had the option to vote “uncommitted.”
