Trump was victorious in a decisive manner, and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had a narrow victory over Nikki Haley, who had previously served as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations. A businessman named Vivek Ramaswamy, who finished in a distant fourth place, decided to halt his candidacy and support Donald Trump.

New Hampshire primary election on January 23

As a result of DeSantis’ withdrawal from the race two days before the primary, Trump was able to overcome Haley, who was his last surviving opponent in the Republican primary. The promise that Haley made was that she would remain in the race until at least the South Carolina Republican primary. Biden was able to win in New Hampshire despite the fact that he was not included on the ballot. This was due to a disagreement between the Granite State and the Democratic National Committee, who made the decision to have the first formal battle for the Democratic primary in South Carolina on February 3.

• The Democratic primary in South Carolina will take place on February 3

• The Nevada primary and caucuses will take place on February 6 and February 8.

Long Island will have a special election on February 13

George Santos, who was expelled from Congress in December as a result of a damning investigation from the House Ethics Committee that decided he “blatantly stole from his campaign,” will be replaced by a candidate who will be chosen by voters in the Third Congressional District of New York.

• The Republican primary in South Carolina will take place on February 24

• The Michigan primary will take place on February 27

• On March 4, Trump’s trial will begin on January 6

As of right now, the date when the trial for the federal election interference case against Trump is scheduled to begin that is March 4. Attempts have been made by the attorneys representing the former president to postpone the trial until after the election.

It is Super Tuesday on March 5th.

Due to the fact that fifteen states, including Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia, as well as one territory, American Samoa, will be holding their primaries or caucuses on Super Tuesday, more than a third of all Republican delegates will be up for grabs. Because of his participation in the Capitol uprising that occurred on January 6, 2021, Trump is not allowed to appear on the ballot in the states of Colorado and Maine, where election authorities have deemed him ineligible. Trump has filed an appeal, and it is possible that the cases may be heard by the Supreme Court.
