Trump Declares Victory By Winning North Dakota Presidential Caucus

By Robert Cunningham, updated on March 5, 2024

In a stunning victory, former President Donald Trump has once again proven his unwavering popularity among Republican voters, securing a decisive win in the North Dakota presidential caucuses.

Trump's triumph in North Dakota further cements his position as the frontrunner in the GOP presidential race, setting the stage for a pivotal Super Tuesday showdown.

The resounding victory, called by multiple major media outlets including the Associated Press, NBC News, CBS News, and CNN, showcased Trump's commanding lead over his closest rival, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley. With an impressive 93 percent of the vote counted, Trump had amassed an astounding 70.5 percent of the support, leaving Haley trailing far behind.

Trump's Endorsement From North Dakota Governor Proves Crucial

Governor Doug Burgum, who had previously mounted his own presidential campaign, threw his weight behind Trump in January, which undoubtedly contributed to the former president's success in the state.

Burgum's endorsement highlighted the stark contrast between the Trump and Biden administrations, emphasizing the need for a drastic change in the nation's direction. In a powerful statement, Burgum declared:

We had a friend and a partner in the White House who understood us and who wanted to see our states succeed versus being regulated out of business. Now, I've had a chance as governor to see what the world is like under Joe Biden, and America needs a 180-degree change in the direction of where Joe Biden has taken us.

Trump's Winning Streak Continues, Haley Vows to Press On

The North Dakota victory adds to Trump's impressive list of wins in the early stages of the Republican primary season, which includes triumphs in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, South Carolina, Michigan, Missouri, and Idaho.

Despite Haley's lone victory in the Washington, D.C. primary, she has refused to concede the overall race, insisting on remaining competitive as long as she maintains voter support and financial backing.

Haley's criticism of Trump's impact on the nation has been a central theme of her campaign, as she calls for a departure from the chaos and division that she believes the former president has brought to the political landscape over the past eight years.

Trump Celebrates Victory, Haley Remains Defiant

In a characteristically brief tweet, Trump expressed his gratitude to the voters of North Dakota, simply stating, "THANK YOU, NORTH DAKOTA!"

Meanwhile, Haley remained defiant, vowing to continue her campaign as long as she enjoyed the support of the American people. She emphasized the importance of voter backing and campaign contributions in determining her path forward, stating:

If the people want to see me go forward, they'll show it. They'll show it in their votes. They'll show it in their donations. They'll show it in the fact that they want us to continue to go forward.

As the Republican primary race enters a crucial phase, with Super Tuesday looming, Trump's commanding victory in North Dakota is a testament to his enduring popularity among conservative voters. The former president's ability to secure wins in diverse states, from the Midwest to the South and beyond, underscores the breadth of his appeal within the party.

However, Haley's refusal to back down and her pointed criticism of Trump's divisive leadership style suggests that the race is far from over. As the primary season progresses, the battle for the Republican nomination will likely intensify, with both candidates vying for the hearts and minds of the American electorate.

The North Dakota caucuses have clearly indicated Trump's strength as a candidate, but the outcome of the Republican primary race remains to be seen. As the nation watches with bated breath, the stage is set for a showdown that will shape the future of the Republican Party and, potentially, the United States as a whole.
