Donald Trump wins Iowa caucuses as Ron DeSantis clinches second place over Nikki Haley | US | News


Sebastian Gorka, who served as Trump’s deputy assistant for eight months in 2017, told Daily Express US the result “vindicated” his former boss.

He added: “Three years of smears and politically motivated attacks by the minions of the state, and American conservatives are still with him.”

DeSantis and Haley’s focus now turns to New Hampshire where Haley is hopeful of gaining ground with the state’s independent voters ahead of the January 23 primary.

Florida Governor DeSantis is heading to New Hampshire on Tuesday after stopping in conservative South Carolina where the February 24 primary could prove crucial.

Trump is also expected to hold a rally in New Hampshire on Tuesday.

A win in Iowa is not a sure-fire indicator of who will lead the Republican Party into the general election.

In 2000, George W. Bush’s victory was the last time a Republican candidate won in the Hawkeye State and went on to become the party’s standard-bearer.
