Trump wins Kentucky GOP primary

Former President Trump has won the Kentucky Republican presidential primary, according to Decision Desk HQ.

Trump, who has already clinched the GOP nomination, will add at least most of the state’s 46 delegates to his total count. Kentucky distributes its delegates proportionally, with candidates needing to receive at least 15 percent of the vote to receive delegates.

Trump was the only active candidate on the ballot, but former candidate Nikki Haley has seen continued support in various contests after leaving the race. She received about 20 percent of the vote in last week’s primaries in Maryland and Nebraska and almost 10 percent in West Virginia.

Voters can also choose an “uncommitted” option instead of any of the candidates listed.

Trump will very likely carry the strongly red-leaning Bluegrass State in November as he did in 2016 and 2020.
