Washington D.C. Republican voters will decide who the party wants to lead this year’s Presidential ticket. The nation’s capital presents former U.N. Nikki Haley as her best chance at winning a primary yet.

Washington D.C. primary will be held over three days, starting on Friday. Polls close Sunday evening. All 19 of Washington D.C.’s delegates are up for grabs. They will either be awarded to the winner who receives more than 50% of the votes or proportionally if there is no winner. Candidates who receive less than 15% will not be eligible to receive delegates.

Former President Donald Trump faces a tough challenge in his quest to win the GOP primaries. The capital of the United States is one of the most heavily Democratic areas in the country.

According to the Associated Press, the former president won his district in 2020 without any competition, but he came in third place behind former Ohio Governor John Kasich and Sen. Marco Rubio from Florida. John Kasich in the 2016 primary.

The Trump campaign has downplayed how important the primary elections are.

A spokesperson for the Trump campaign stated that “Republican votes have delivered resounding victories for President Trump in every primary contest, and this race has ended.” “Our attention is now focused on Joe Biden and the general elections.”

Trump has dominated the primary season so far, winning in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada as well as the Virgin Islands, South Carolina, Michigan, South Carolina, and Michigan. Haley is the lone Republican candidate who has vowed to take on the former president despite her recent defeat in South Carolina.

The nation’s capital holds one of its most unique primary elections, with voting starting on Friday and closing at 7 pm Sunday. The Associated Press reports that early voting and absentee balloting are prohibited, and the results aren’t announced live but are instead announced an hour after polls close by district party officials.

The primary is just days away from Super Tuesday when 15 states hold GOP contests, awarding 865 delegates.

Trump is currently in a strong position on the Republican side. President Biden has a similar grip on the Democratic party. It’s all but certain that the two candidates will face off again for the 2020 campaign.
