In the Nevada Republican primary, Donald Trump wasn’t on the ballot, but the “none of these candidates” option was projected to defeat Nikki Haley.

Despite her presence on the ballot, Haley didn’t actively campaign in Nevada.

Haley’s campaign manager Betsy Ankney said, “In terms of Nevada, we have not spent a dime nor an ounce of energy on Nevada.”

“So Nevada is not and has never been our focus,” she continued.

Trump criticized her performance, and his campaign advised supporters to participate in the upcoming caucus, where Trump’s name will appear.

Trump wrote, “A bad night for Nikki Haley. Losing by almost 30 points in Nevada to ‘None of These Candidates.’ Watch, she’ll soon claim Victory!”

Trump’s campaign senior adviser Chris LaCivita posted, “More embarrassment coming in South Carolina …the @NikkiHaley Delusional Tour continues.”

The primary and caucus confusion stems from a 2021 law change, leading to two separate contests.

Betsy Ankney said, “We made the decision early on that we were not going to pay $55,000 to a Trump entity that, you know, to participate in a process that was rigged for Trump.”

Some candidates, including Haley, viewed the caucus as biased towards Trump and chose to skip it.

The Nevada GOP supports Trump, and his campaign emphasized the importance of the caucus over the primary vote.

Trump is expected to be in Las Vegas for the caucus celebration.

Trump reently said, “Your primary vote doesn’t mean anything. It’s your caucus vote.”

“So in your state, you have both the primary and you have a caucus. Don’t worry about the primary, just do the caucus thing,” he continued.
