Nikki Haley wins Republican primary in Washington DC in first victory over Donald Trump

On Sunday, March 3, Nikki Haley prevailed in the Republican presidential primary held in Washington, DC. In the contest against former president Donald Trump, this is her first triumph. Her victory occurs right before Super Tuesday, when votes will be cast in fifteen states and one territory.

According to Olivia Perez-Cubas, a spokesman for Haley, "it's not surprising that Republicans closest to Washington dysfunction are rejecting Donald Trump and all his chaos."

A statement titled "Statement on Nikki Haley Being Crowned Queen of the Swamp" was also posted by Trump's campaign. The statement added that tonight's outcomes in Washington, DC, validated President Trump's campaign slogan, which is to "drain the swamp and put America first."

Nikki Haley’s defeats

Most recently, Trump prevailed in the Republican primary in Michigan, and Haley was defeated in yet another 2024 election. Following Haley's defeat in her home state of South Carolina, Trump has won. Still, she swore to carry on the battle.

The Haley campaign described Trump's defeat in Michigan as a dangerous omen. It was reported that roughly one-third of Republican primary voters did not vote for the outgoing president.

Haley campaign national spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas said in a statement that "let this serve as another warning sign that what has happened in Michigan will continue to play out across the country," as reported by NBC News. Republicans will continue to lose to the socialist left as long as Donald Trump is at the head of the ticket. Better is what our kids deserve.

Haley was defeated by Trump in Nevada, New Hampshire, and Iowa, all states where she was not on the ticket. Trump also triumphed over her in the US Virgin Islands prior to his loss in South Carolina.

Haley continued to defend her choice to continue running in the Michigan race prior to the winner being declared. Only a few states have held elections thus far. She remarked to CNN's Dana Bash, "I mean, look, as much as the media wants to jump ahead, we're taking this one state, one day at a time."
