Donald Trump Wins Republican Presidential Primary In Illinois

Date:

New Delhi: Former US President Donald Trump has won the Republican Primary in Illinois on March 19, 2024. Trump however has already won the required delegates to become the Presidential candidate of the Republican party. His win in Illinois adds to his winning streak on the GOP side.

According to The Hill, there are 64 GOP delegates up for grabs in Illinois. Earlier in the 2020 Presidential elections President Joe Biden beat Donald Trump by nearly 17 points. Trump also lost the state in 2016 to former Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

  • Notably, Joe Biden, this year has clinched the democratic nod and is set to win as many as 147 delegates from the state. Both Biden and Trump are set for a rematch in the race for the White House in 2024 elections.
  • Trump clinched the Republican nomination for President on March 13, while Biden secured the nomination on March 12 this year. As per CNN, the rematch between both the candidates will be similar to the 2020 election campaign, but Trump this time will run under the radar of 91 felony charges and allegations against him for plotting to overturn the 2020 polls.
  • The charges that Donald Trump has against his name include the lead role he played in the January 6, 2021 violence at the US capitol, illegal possession of classified documents from the White House and covered-up Hush Money payments to Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 elections.
  • However, Trump has now achieved a record of accomplishments and missteps for voters to decide. President Biden is running a similar campaign to 2020, targeting Trump’s authoritarian behaviour and a middling economy.
  • Although the President himself is under the radar for the Israel and Ukraine war as well as the border crisis that has affected the United States a lot. But unlike Trump, US President Biden has never faced a serious well-funded primary challenge, with Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips, his lone rival in elected office, dropping out of the race and endorsing Biden for Presidency.
