Former President Donald Trump may be able to clinch the Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday, after results are in from the four GOP voting contests taking place in Georgia, Washington, Mississippi and Hawaii. President Biden may also clinch the nomination on Tuesday.
Republicans Georgia, Mississippi and Washington will hold primaries, while Hawaii is holding GOP caucuses. Democrats will be holding primaries in Georgia, Mississippi, Washington and the northern Mariana Islands, and Democrats abroad will also be voting.
Trump’s remaining major rival, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, dropped her White House bid after the Super Tuesday primaries. Mr. Biden does not have any major challengers, reports CBS News.
Trump dominated the Republican field without ever debating any of his primary opponents, and has dominated the early state nominating contests.
The former president is also entering the general election phase of the presidential campaign facing 91 felony charges in four criminal cases. His first criminal trial is slated to begin on March 25 in New York, where he faces 34 charges connected to alleged “hush money” payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential election. Trump also faces state criminal charges in Georgia for alleged interference in the 2020 presidential election, as well as federal charges in Washington, D.C. He is also facing federal charges in Florida over his handling of classified documents after his presidency.
In the four contests Tuesday, 161 GOP delegates are at stake. Trump has over 1,075 delegates, according to CBS News estimates, and is closing in on the 1,215 delegates needed to secure the nomination. There are 254 Democratic delegates that can be won in the March 12 contests, with Mr. Biden closing in on the 1,968 needed to clinch.
Trump would be the first Republican in history ever to secure the presidential nomination three straight times. Richard Nixon won the GOP nomination three times, although not in consecutive cycles.
For Republicans, in Georgia, 59 delegates are on the line; in Mississippi, 40 delegates are in play; in Washington, that’s 43 delegates; in the Hawaii caucus, 19 delegates are up for grabs.
