Weld Struggles at Iowa Caucuses

February 4, 2020

As the Democratic Party could not figure out its own Iowa Caucuses, President Donald Trump cruised to a dominant victory on Monday night.

The Republican trounced his opponents — including former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld and retired Congressman Joe Walsh (R-Illinois). Trump received 97.1 percent of the vote, whereas Weld got 1.31 percent and Walsh got 1.08 percent.

GOP Chairman Jeff Kaufman praised Trump following his landslide win Monday, February 3.

“What a way to kick off President Trump’s re-election campaign – with decisive, record-breaking caucus results,” he told KCCI Des Moines. “I have no doubt the energy and enthusiasm we saw tonight will carry through this election. After successfully negotiating two massive trade deals, confirming two Supreme Court justices, cutting taxes, and taking decisive action to make the world a safer place, it is no surprise that Iowans want four more years of winning with President Trump.”

Trump, Weld, and Walsh will face off next in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, February 11.
