Trump nabs latest win in Louisiana GOP primary

Former President Trump, the likely GOP nominee, has won the Louisiana Republican presidential primary, Decision Desk HQ projected.

Trump went into the Louisiana primary with 1,636 pledged delegates and won all 47 delegates available Saturday. The state awards its delegates in a “winner-take-all” manner.

The former president has already crossed the threshold needed to clinch the party’s nomination, setting up a rematch between him and President Biden in November.

Trump carried Louisiana in the 2020 election, bringing in 58 percent of the vote, over Biden’s 40 percent. He also won the state in 2016 against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The Pelican State is not expected to play a decisive role in the general election.
