The anticipation was building as the patriots gathered in Nevada.
Was Trump going to win it in Nevada?
Sure, the answer may be obvious.
But with nothing being normal these days, and the Democrats being what they are, who knows if something could go wrong. A glitch in the voting software?
But not tonight!
It was a smash win for President Trump!

Fox News reports:
It was never in doubt, and now it’s official.
Former President Donald Trump is projected to win Nevada’s Republican presidential caucus, according to the Associated Press.
The call on Thursday night came quickly after caucus precincts from across the Silver State began reporting results.
The former president, who’s the commanding front-runner for the 2024 nomination as he bids a third straight time for the White House, was the only major candidate on the ballot in a caucus run by the Nevada GOP. And he grabbed all 26 delegates to this summer’s nominating convention were at stake in the caucus.
Trump’s win in Nevada came hours after he grabbed roughly three-quarters of the vote for a landside victory in a presidential caucus run the the U.S. Virgin Islands GOP.
The former president also came up a winner on Tuesday, in Nevada’s state-run Republican presidential primary, even though he wasn’t on the ballot.
Trump’s absence from the primary ballot wasn’t enough to provide a path to victory for Nikki Haley – the former president’s last remaining major rival for the 2024 Republican nomination.
The former two-term South Carolina governor who later served as U.N. ambassador in the Trump administration lost on Tuesday to a “none of these candidates” option by a more than two-to-one margin in a primary where no GOP convention delegates were at stake.
Voters casting ballots in the primary couldn’t write in Trump’s name, but they could vote for “none of these candidates.” And Trump supporters Fox News interviewed outside of polling stations said that is how they voted.
Here’s what Reuters had to say on Trump’s win:
Donald Trump won Republican presidential nominating caucuses in Nevada and the U.S. Virgin Islands on Thursday, moving closer to becoming his party’s White House standard-bearer in a likely general election rematch with U.S. President Joe Biden in November.
Trump, the frontrunner in his party’s nominating race, was the only major candidate competing in Nevada’s caucuses and was set to win the state’s 26 delegates to the party’s nominating convention in July after being projected the winner on Thursday night by Edison Research.
Earlier on Thursday, Trump easily won the U.S. Virgin Islands caucuses, adding four to his delegate haul. The former U.S. president won 182 votes, or 74% of the 246 votes cast there, beating his last remaining rival in the Republican race, Nikki Haley, who won 26% support with 64 votes.
Speaking to reporters before he left Florida for Nevada, Trump called the Colorado case “more election interference by the Democrats.”
After his win, Trump appeared before supporters in Las Vegas.
“I want to thank the great people of Nevada,” he said to cheers. He called Thursday’s Supreme Court arguments “a beautiful sight to watch”.
