However, this 2021 law had a legal loophole: although it established that there should be primaries, it did not specify how the Republican Party would attribute the winner to Nevada’s 26 delegates, who are those who during party conventions officially proclaim the candidate, both Democrat and as republican, to the presidential elections.

Taking advantage of this legal loophole, Trump pressured the Nevada Republican Party to ignore state law and continue with its tradition of distributing delegates at conventions, in which it will also participate this Thursday.

Trump’s victory in the US Virgin Islands caucuses adds to that in the Iowa caucuses, the New Hampshire and the supposed victory in Nevada.
