Everyone’s been chatting about the Democrat nomination. Biden’s the presumptive nominee and Sanders is rethinking his candidacy. But on the other side, it has (not unexpectedly) been a total wipeout. Yesterday, Donald Trump passed the threshold to claim the Republican Party Nomination.
President Trump is now officially poised to be the Republican presidential nominee after surpassing the required number of delegates to attain the GOP nomination.
The president was not facing any significant challenges to his reelection bid and has won every state in the Republican primary thus far. Going into election night Tuesday, Trump had already accrued 1,104 delegates and needed to hit the GOP threshold of 1,276.
Mr. Trump’s current delegate total after winning yesterday’s primaries in Florida and Illinois is 1,330. Ohio canceled their primary and Arizona Republicans never planned to have one.
Bill Weld, a candidate willing to switch parties to run for office, never had much chance, has not officially dropped out. And he does have one delegate. Not exactly damning proof that the party wants to see a change in the oval office.
But he’s still in there. Propped up just barely by Never-Trumper money. Playing whatever card he has because he’s got nothing else to do.
And who knows, he could run the third party. It is, after all, the mission of Never Trumpers to let
Democrat Socialists treat you and your country like a rental car as long as they can sit in the back seat.
