Former US President Donald Trump won the Republican primary in the state of New Hampshire this Tuesday (23), according to a projection by the Associated Press news agency. Former United States Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, came in 2nd place.
It is worth remembering that the dispute (which is part of the Republicans’ choice of a name to run for President in November) had only 2 prominent candidates.
On Sunday (21), Florida governor Ron DeSantis withdrew from the presidential race and declared support for Trump. On January 16, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy had done the same.
As a result, both candidates withdrew after the results of the Iowa caucus. At the time, the country’s former president achieved the biggest victory in history for a Republican in Iowa, winning in 98 of the state’s 99 counties.
Now, with Trump’s victory, he will have 11 more delegates in his favor. To be chosen as the Republican Party’s candidate for the presidential race, the former president needs 1,276 delegates.
