Trump also won on Feb. 8 in New Hampshire and on Feb. 20 in South Carolina.
A huge cheer went up for Trump when it was announced that he was the predicted winner at an event for the candidate at Treasure Island.
Upon Donald Trump’s win of the Nevada GOP caucuses tonight, DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz issued the following statement:
“Donald Trump’s victory tonight means he has won the vast majority of the Republican primary delegates to this point, and is well on his way to winning his party’s nomination. After years of pandering to extremists, the Republican Party is now stuck with what it created: a field of extreme candidates with views far out of the mainstream and out of touch with the American people.
“At least with Trump, he’s not shy about exposing what the Republican brand has truly become. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are every bit as extreme as their party’s frontrunner, they just hide it better. Well the voters are seeing right through it, which is why Marco Rubio got exactly zero delegates out of South Carolina in his virtual tie with Ted Cruz and was dealt a fourth consecutive loss by the voters of Nevada tonight.
"The losers tonight will no doubt try once again to spin their failure as a victory. It’s not.”
