His opponent, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, was defeated in this crucial contest, which took place just before Super Tuesday12.

Here are the key details:

  • Delegate Allocation: If Trump wins at least 60% of the statewide vote, he will take all 29 of North Dakota’s GOP delegates. Otherwise, the delegates will be allocated proportionally between Trump and Haley based on the final statewide vote1.
  • Haley’s Track Record: Nikki Haley has won only one GOP nominating contest so far, which occurred in Washington, D.C.. However, she has also earned delegates from early voting states1.
  • Super Tuesday: On Tuesday, 865 delegates—representing 36% of all delegates in the race—will be up for grabs across over a dozen states. The candidate who secures the majority of the party’s delegates (1,215 out of 2,429 total delegates) before the Republican National Convention this summer will become the official nominee1.

As the campaign intensifies, the battle for delegates continues, shaping the course of the 2024 presidential race.
