Nikki Haley Faces Setback as ‘None of These Candidates’ Prevails in GOP Primary, The pace of the US presidential election has quickened, with numerous celebrities vying for the Republican Party nomination. However, former President Donald Trump remains unchallenged.
In a surprising turn, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Indian-American Vivek Ramaswamy, who were in the Republican presidential race, withdrew, throwing their support behind Trump. This leaves South Carolina’s former governor Nikki Haley, of Indian origin, as Trump’s sole contender.
But in a Nevada primary where Haley faced no opponents, voters shocked her by choosing the ‘None of these candidates’ option, with 61 percent of the vote, while Haley received only 32 percent.
The outcome sparked intense debate in American politics. In the same primaries, current President Joe Biden secured victory for the Democratic Party, while Trump refrained from contesting on the Republican side.
Trump ridiculed Haley over the Nevada results, noting her significant loss to the ‘None of these candidates’ option. This marks Haley’s third primary defeat.
Despite Trump’s absence from debates and primaries, his strong support from voters may pave the way for his official nomination as the Republican Party’s presidential candidate.
