( – On Tuesday, March 12, former President Donald Trump became the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee in the 2024 presidential race after he reportedly won the Washington, Mississippi, and Georgia state primaries. 

In a video message to his supporters, he stated that the day was a “great day of victory.” Trump was the only major candidate left in the Republican primary race. 

Earlier in the evening, both Trump and President Joe Biden officially gained enough delegates to clinch their nominations. Both were expected to either win all or nearly all the delegates that were available in Tuesday’s contests. These delegates were enough to put both candidates over the threshold required to secure their places in the general election.

With this latest development, it is expected that the 2024 presidential election race is going to be a rerun of the 2020 presidential election, as Biden will be the nominee for the Democratic party and Trump will be the one for the Republican party. Both parties are scheduled to host their official national nominating conventions in the summer, with the Republican one taking place in July and the Democratic one in August. 

Trump started this week with 1,078 delegates and needed 1,215 delegates in total to secure the nomination. In Georgia, there were 59 Republican delegates, in Mississippi 40, and in Washington state 43 delegates that Trump could collect. There were another 19 delegates in Hawaii, which also held its primary caucus later that same evening. 

On Super Tuesday, which took place on March 5, Trump won in 14 out of the 15 Republican presidential races. Biden also dominated his races.
