Donald Trump Wins Nevada Caucuses

Donald Trump scored another victory in his disruptive and defiant campaign for the Republican nomination, winning the Nevada caucuses by a wide margin over his GOP rivals, according to the projections of CNN and MSNBC.

Trump held a huge lead over his rivals, albeit with just 5% of the precincts counted on Tuesday evening.

“When you listen to the pundits, we weren’t expected to win too much, but now we are winning, winning, winning the country,” Trump told supporters gathered in in Las Vegas. He predicted that it would “an amazing two months…we may not even need the two months.”

Among those in the crowd: Vegas hotel owners Steve Wynn and Phil Ruffin.

“We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated,” Trump said.

This was Trump’s third victory, following victories in New Hampshire and South Carolina by wide margins. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were expected to vie for second place.

Trump does have a kind of home field advantage: His Trump International Hotel is located just off the Las Vegas strip.

At some caucus locations, there were reports of confusion and disorganization, or of ballots being handed to voters without IDs being checked. But party officials said that there were no official reports of irregularities or violations.
