Add another notch to the victory belt for President Donald J. Trump!

He just won Missouri, remaining undefeated in Primary season:

From Fox News, here are more details:

Donald Trump will win the Missouri Republican caucuses, the Associated Press projects, delivering yet another victory for the former president against former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

The Associated Press called the race for Trump early Saturday afternoon. The former president was expected to cruise to victory after big wins in every contest prior to Saturday.

After her loss in her home state of South Carolina, Haley vowed to remain in the race at least through Super Tuesday on March 5, where voters in 15 states will head to the polls to make their choice for president.

Even though Trump is the clear winner of the state, Missouri awards 51 of its 54 delegates through a months-long process called a “caucus-convention system” that only begins with Saturday’s caucusing.

The system dictates that 11 delegates will be awarded to candidates at the state level and five will be awarded from each of Missouri’s eight congressional districts. The three remaining delegates are the chairman of the Missouri Republican Party, and its national committeeman and committeewoman, who can support any candidate they wish, regardless of the caucus results.

And from the local Kansas City Star:

Former President Donald Trump won Missouri’s Republican caucus on Saturday, reaffirming his tight grip over the party as he marches toward the nomination amid numerous criminal charges. Trump’s victory underscored how thoroughly he has re-centered the Republican Party around himself, both in Missouri and across the country, since he launched his first presidential campaign nearly nine years ago.

No prominent current elected Missouri Republican spoke against Trump ahead of Saturday and his dominance of the caucus was expected. Trump’s only remaining major competitor, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, has virtually no chance of winning the nomination barring a major, unexpected development.

The Associated Press called the Missouri GOP caucus for Trump at 11:40 a.m., a little less than two hours after caucus gatherings began across the state. Full results weren’t immediately available. The Missouri caucus on Saturday, which took place alongside the Idaho caucus and a Michigan statewide convention, came ahead of a slew of contests this coming Tuesday, called Super Tuesday, when 15 states will hold caucuses and primary elections. Those contests are expected to further cement Trump’s frontrunner status.
