Trump played smart and came one step closer to the Republican nomination as the 2024 presidential election began in the United States on Monday night (January 15) in Iowa. The state was holding its first-in-the-nation caucuses at the time, and Trump deviated from his usual attacking style and congratulated his Republican rivals, according to ABC News.Notably, Trump began his campaign to obtain the Republican Party’s nomination for president for the third time in a row, despite the fact that he did not participate in the Republican primary debates. In addition, the results indicated how ‘devoted’ Republicans continue to be to Trump despite the fact that he is running a campaign that is quite unorthodox, one that is being conducted between court appearances, indictments, and removal from ballot distribution.

Despite the fact that the fight was transferred to New Hampshire, where the latter enjoys some clout, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis placed in a distant second place with eight delegates, and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley finished not much behind with seven delegates.

Particularly noteworthy is the fact that the Republican Party and the Democratic Party select their candidates through the caucuses and primaries, respectively.

Primaries are held in the majority of states in the United States; however, several states that have traditionally been strongholds for the Republican Party, such as Iowa, hold caucuses to elect delegates. According to Al Jazeera, the delegates who were elected in the caucuses and primaries at the convention went on to vote.

Since the year 1972, the beginning of the presidential primaries has been marked by this one-of-a-kind voting event that takes place in Iowa, a state that is dominated by Republicans.

After the caucuses in Iowa were held on January 15 (Monday night), the primary election in New Hampshire will take place on January 23. This will be followed by the primary election in Nevada for the Democratic party on February 6 and the caucuses for the Republican party on February 8.

With President Joe Biden’s popularity among party voters, there is minimal action on the Democratic side. This is because Democratic Vice President Joe Biden wants to glide to the nomination.

According to ABC News, numerous intraparty competitors, including author Marianne Williamson and Minnesota Representative Dean Phillips, are running in the unofficial primary of the Democratic Party in New Hampshire on January 23, with the intention of providing a boost to their campaigns that are considered to be beyond the mainstream.

The Democratic National Convention will take place in Chicago from August 19-22, while the Republican National Convention will visit Milwaukee from July 15-18. Both conventions will take place in the United States.

As a result of the national conventions, the primary phase of the 2024 election has been officially concluded. It is anticipated that the general election campaign will pick up speed over the course of the summer, culminating in the celebration of Election Day on November 5.

On the other hand, millions of people are anticipated to cast their ballots due of the increased popularity of mail-in ballots.
