Trump wins over Haley in South Carolina for Republican presidential nomination

RNS: In a stunning turn of events, Donald Trump has clinched a significant victory over Nikki Haley in South Carolina, further solidifying his path toward securing the Republican presidential nomination. With a staggering 20-point margin over Haley, Trump’s commanding win marks his fourth consecutive triumph in the race.

Addressing his supporters in a celebratory speech, Trump expressed his determination to continue in the race, setting his sights on the upcoming general election in November. He praised the unity within the Republican Party, describing it as unprecedented, stating, “There has never been a spirit like this. I have never seen the Republican Party so unified.”

Nikki Haley, a former popular two-term governor of South Carolina, graciously conceded defeat and congratulated Trump on his victory in her speech. Despite the setback, Haley vowed to press on, highlighting that a significant number of voters in Republican primaries are seeking an alternative. She emphasized that her decision to continue her campaign is not driven by personal ambition but by a commitment to represent those who disapprove of both Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

Haley has reaffirmed her commitment to stay in the race at least until Super Tuesday on March 5, when voters in 16 states will cast their ballots simultaneously.
