For the first time in the current race for the Republican nomination in the US presidential election, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has outperformed Donald Trump, clinching a victory in the District of Columbia primaries.

This win has brought Haley a significant boost, securing all 19 delegates available and effectively doubling her delegate count for the upcoming Republican National Convention in Milwaukee this July.

As reported by the Associated Press, Haley's win was decisive, with a 63% to 33% lead over Trump.

This victory increases her delegate total to 43, while Trump leads with 244 delegates, according to Bloomberg's latest counts.

Haley has expressed her determination to stay in the race until the very end, despite not specifying which primaries she believes she will win.

She has been openly critical of Trump and has made it clear that she has no intention of ending her campaign prematurely.

Previously, Haley committed to remaining in the nomination contest at least until Super Tuesday on March 5 and has explicitly stated her disinterest in serving as vice president under Trump, should he secure the Republican nomination.
