Nikki Haley Wins Republican Primary in Washington DC

On Sunday, March 3, Nikki Haley won the Republican presidential primary in Washington, DC. This is her first win in the battle against former President Donald Trump. Her victory comes just before of Super Tuesday, when 15 states and one territory vote.

“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.

Trump’s campaign too released a statement, calling it a “statement on Nikki Haley Being Crowned Queen of The Swamp.” “Tonight’s results in Washington DC reaffirm the object of President Trump’s campaign — he will drain the swamp and put America first,” the statement said.

Nikki Haley’s defeats

Most recently, Trump won Michigan’s Republican primary, with Haley losing yet another 2024 contest. Trump’s victory comes after Haley lost in her home state, South Carolina. However, she vowed to continue the fight.

The Haley campaign characterized the Michigan loss as a bad sign for Trump. It noted that about one-third of Republican primary voters cast ballots for someone other than the former president.

“Let this serve as another warning sign that what has happened in Michigan will continue to play out across the country,” Haley campaign national spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas said in a statement, according to NBC News. “So long as Donald Trump is at the top of the ticket, Republicans will keep losing to the socialist left. Our children deserve better.”

Trump defeated Haley in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada, where she did not appear on the ballot. She was also trounced by Trump in the US Virgin Islands before losing in South Carolina.

Before the Michigan winner was declared, Haley defended her choice to remain in the contest. “We’ve just seen a few states vote. “We’re taking this one state, one day at a time,” she told CNN’s Dana Bash.
