WASHINGTON (AP) – Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump calls it a “great honor” to win primary elections in West Virginia and Nebraska.
The billionaire businessman says in a statement after Tuesday’s elections that his time campaigning in both states was a wonderful and “enlightening” experience.
Trump says, “I learned a lot, and that knowledge will be put to good use towards the creation of businesses, jobs and the strengthening and revival of their economies.”
Trump says he plans to return to both states soon, and win them in the general election this November.
Donald Trump’s victory in West Virginia means he will get at least three delegates.
The 31 other delegates in West Virginia are elected directly by voters. Their names appear on the ballot, along with the presidential candidate they support.
Nebraska will award all 36 of its delegates to Trump.
With 1,071 delegates, Trump has 87 percent of the delegates needed to win the Republican nomination for president. With no major rivals left in the race, he is already the party’s presumptive nominee.
