The defeat marks a significant setback for Haley, who had never before lost an election in South Carolina.

Reflecting on the outcome, Trump addressed supporters, emphasizing the unity within the Republican Party under his leadership. 

Haley Stays in the Race

Haley, however, remains undeterred despite the setback. She reiterated her commitment to the race, emphasizing the need to offer voters an alternative to both Trump and President Joe Biden.

Despite mounting pressure to withdraw from the race, Haley’s campaign intends to press forward, with plans to invest heavily in Super Tuesday states and continue campaigning across the country.

The dynamics of the Republican primaries have been shaped by contrasting visions within the party.

A candidate needs 1,215 delegates to secure the GOP nomination. To-date Trump has won 63, and Haley has 17.
