Donald Trump received 51% of the vote in the Iowa Republican Party caucuses (effectively, primary election)—one of the highest, if not the highest, votes ever recorded in primary contests in Iowa for a candidate from any party. Former Governors Ron De Santis of Florida and Nikki Haley of South Carolina combined for 40% of the vote—meaning that, had they had one candidate, Trump would have still soundly beaten him or her. Vivek Ramaswamy who won 3 of the 40 delegates, immediately ended his campaign and gave Trump his support.
The New York Post reports that the former President won in all but one county—Johnson County—being the only one to deny Trump a clean sweep by barely going for Haley.
The Post quoted the former President as saying: “I really think this is time now for everybody in our country to come together. We want to come together—whether it’s Republican or Democrat or liberal or conservative. It would be so nice if we could come together and straighten out the world and straighten out the problems and straighten out all of the death and destruction that we’re witnessing.”
