Super Tuesday expected to boost Trump closer to clinching GOP nomination as Haley makes last stand

Donald Trump won't clinch the 2024 Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday.

But with the former president likely to capture the lion's share of the 854 Republican delegates up for grabs when 15 states hold GOP primaries or caucuses on what's known as Super Tuesday, Trump is expected to move significantly closer to locking up his party's presidential nomination over his last remaining rival – Nikki Haley.

"It’s big stuff and it’s the single most important primary day of the year," Trump told his supporters in a video posted on social media ahead of Super Tuesday.

Trump has swept all but one of the first nine contests on the GOP nominating calendar, including North Dakota's Republican presidential caucuses on the eve of Super Tuesday. 

Another strong showing by the former president in Tuesday's coast-to-coast primaries and caucuses will help him in his mission to completely pivot from a primary battle with Haley to a general election rematch with President Biden, who defeated Trump four years ago to win the White House.

"If every single conservative, Republican, and Trump supporter in these states shows up on Super Tuesday, we will be very close to finished with this primary contest," Trump emphasized. "Republicans will then be able to focus all of our energy, time, and resources, on defeating crooked Joe Biden."
