Missouri Republicans pick Donald Trump, Idaho and Michigan likely to follow

Election 2024 Trump
The race is getting closer to wrapping up.

More delegates are up for grabs Saturday as former President Donald Trump looks to get closer to clinching the Republican nomination and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley seeks her first win.

Trump has won Missouri’s Republican caucuses, one of three events Saturday that will award delegates for the GOP presidential nomination.

The former president, who is especially strong in caucuses, added to his delegate lead in Republican caucuses in Missouri as well as at a party convention in Michigan. Idaho was scheduled to hold its caucuses later Saturday.

There are no Democratic contests on Saturday.

The next contest is the GOP caucus in Washington, D.C., on Sunday. Two days later is Super Tuesday, when 16 states and American Samoa will hold primaries on what will be the largest day of voting of the year outside of the November election. Trump is on track to lock up the nomination days later.

The last GOP caucuses in Idaho were in 2012, when about 40,000 of the state’s nearly 200,000 registered Republican voters showed up to select their preferred candidate.

If one candidate gets more than 50% of the statewide votes, that candidate will win all the Idaho delegates. If none of the candidates gets more than 50% of the votes, then each candidate with at least 15% of the total votes will get a proportionate number of delegates.

The Missouri Republican Party also will hold presidential caucuses on Saturday, offering state voters their only chance to weigh in on who should represent the party on the November presidential ballot.

A Michigan GOP convention in Grand Rapids on Saturday will allocate 39 of the state’s 55 GOP presidential delegates, but a significant portion of the party’s grassroots force won’t be attending due to the aftereffects of a months-long dispute over who is leading the party.

Still, the party is expected to unite behind Trump on Saturday.

Trump won Michigan’s Feb. 27 Republican primary handily, receiving 68% of the vote compared to Haley’s 27%.

    Conservative oriented folks need to ask themselves if Trump winning the GOP Primary is really worth 4 more years of Sleepy Joe’s Biden Administration.

    Maybe fly your Trump flag but vote for a Conservative who didn’t burn all the bridges down last time he lost.

    I look at the list of Trump indictment’s and the evidence behind them and realize that our legal system is indeed rigged against equal justice. Stealing top secret, classified documents and lying about it lands most people in jail. That’s just one example.

    Trump is merely a freak show mirrors of the rot and corruption of what’ remains of the Republican Party. So much for the party if “law and order.” The MAGA motto is “laws for thee, but not for me.”

    All I did was allegedly plan some stuff.

    Trump made plans and carried them out, resulting in multiple deaths.

    I was charged as Enemy Combatant and am still locked up 17 years later despite harming zero people, with 7 more years to serve.

    Enemy Combatant Trump is still free and even gets to be President again.

    Muslim Nationalist wannabe terrorists that are US Citizens? Lock me up and throw away the key.

    But Christian Nationalist actual terrorists that are US Citizens? Look the other way. That’s fine. Actually you be President!
