After today’s Republican and Democratic primaries in Washington, Georgia, Mississippi, Trump and Biden could secure 2024 nomination.

Republican and Democratic Presidential Nominations Update

As the results of the four GOP voting contests in Georgia, Washington, Mississippi, and Hawaii emerge, former President Donald Trump and President Biden are poised to potentially secure their party’s nominations.

Republican Primaries and Democratic Contests

Republicans in Georgia, Mississippi, and Washington are conducting primaries, while Hawaii is hosting GOP caucuses. Democrats are engaged in primaries in Georgia, Mississippi, Washington, and the northern Mariana Islands, with Democrats abroad also participating in voting.

Former United Nations Ambassador Gov. Nikki Haley ended her White House bid after the Super Tuesday primaries, leaving Trump uncontested in the GOP race. On the Democratic side, Mr. Biden faces no significant challengers.

Trump’s Presidential Campaign and Legal Challenges

Despite bypassing debates with primary opponents, Trump has emerged victorious in early state nominating contests. However, he faces legal hurdles with 91 felony charges across four criminal cases, including trials in New York, Georgia, Washington, D.C., and Florida.

With 161 GOP delegates up for grabs in the current contests, Trump, with over 1,075 delegates, is nearing the 1,215 threshold for nomination. On the Democratic front, 254 delegates are available, moving Mr. Biden closer to the 1,968 required for clinching the nomination.

Securing the nomination would make Trump the first Republican to achieve this feat three consecutive times, with Richard Nixon being the only other GOP candidate to win the nomination thrice.

Notable delegate counts in the Republican contests are Georgia (59), Mississippi (40), Washington (43), and Hawaii (19).
