‘None of these candidates' defeats Nikki Haley in Nevada Republican primary, NBC News projects

·1 min

None of the candidates won the Nevada Republican primary, according to NBC News. The former President was not on the ballot. Former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley lost to “none of these candidates.” Nevada voters had the option to vote for “none of these candidates.” There will not be any delegates awarded from the results. The Nevada Republican Party opposed the change from caucus to primary, opting to hold its own caucuses instead. As a result, Republicans are competing in two different contests. Trump is running virtually unopposed in the caucus. Haley’s campaign downplayed the importance of the Nevada contests. Trump has treated his primary opponents as distractions. Haley is Trump’s final Republican challenger, vowing to continue her campaign. The campaign has criticized Trump, arguing he is a weak choice to face Biden.
