Donald Trump has inched closer to securing the Republican presidential nomination by prevailing over Nikki Haley in the New Hampshire primary. During his victory speech on Tuesday night, January 23, Trump declared, “We’ve won New Hampshire three times now, three. We win it every time, we win the primary, we win the generals.”

What’s next after the New Hampshire Primary?

Following the New Hampshire primary, presidential candidates are redirecting their attention to upcoming contests in Nevada and other states. The ensuing series of primaries and caucuses will culminate in the Republican National Convention in July, where delegates will officially designate their nominee.

Candidates will now turn their focus to Nevada and the Virgin Islands. Nevada is hosting a state-run primary on February 6, followed by party-run caucuses on February 8. It’s important to note that while Haley is on the ballot for the primary, she is not listed for the caucuses. Meanwhile, Trump is on the ballot for the caucuses but not the primary.

The upcoming pivotal contest is set for February 24 in South Carolina, where Haley served as governor from 2011 to 2017. Despite Haley’s familiarity with voters, the state’s conservative primary electorate is anticipated to strongly favor Trump. Subsequently, Michigan will host its primary three days later, on February 27.

The schedule for February is as follows:
