Haley scores her first victory of the 2024 GOP presidential nominating contest by winning in DC

After a string of losses to former President Donald Trump during the 2024 Republican presidential nominating contest, Nikki Haley finally snapped her massive losing streak by winning the GOP presidential primary in the District of Columbia.

According to results reported by the Associated Press, Haley received 1,274 votes, while Trump received 676 votes.

The individual who becomes the 2024 Republican presidential nominee likely stands little chance of winning Washington, D.C., during the general election, as the city has gone blue in each presidential contest since 1964, which was the first presidential election that took place after the 23rd Amendment was in place.

Haley, a former South Carolina governor who even lost the GOP presidential primary in her home state last month, has declined to drop out of the contest, even as Trump dominates.

"I purposely stayed away from the D.C. Vote because it is the 'Swamp,' with very few delegates, and no upside," Trump claimed in a post on Truth Social. "Birdbrain is a loser, record low performance in virtually every State," he said in another post.

Haley, who served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations during a portion of Trump's White House tenure, may be dealt a slew of losses on Super Tuesday.

"Don't complain about what happens in a general election if you don't participate in the primary election," a post on Haley's X account states. A graphic included with the post declares, "VOTE NIKKI HALEY ON SUPER TUESDAY AND SAVE THE COUNTRY."
