Former President Donald Trump cruised to an easy victory in the Nevada GOP Caucus on Thursday evening, claiming an overwhelming portion of the vote in a contest that included no major challengers.

The Associated Press called the contest shortly after polls closed, with Trump claiming 97.6% of the vote. Pastor Ryan Binkley also appeared on the ballot and claimed 2.4% support as of press time.

The state held a Republican primary on Tuesday evening in which “none of these candidates” defeated former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Trump’s sole remaining challenger of standing, by a nearly two-to-one margin. While the state opted to hold primaries, the GOP chose to retain its traditional caucus, resulting in separate contests.

Earlier on Thursday, Trump claimed a clear victory in the Virgin Islands GOP Caucus, receiving roughly 74% of the vote, the Associated Press projected. Haley claimed roughly 26%.
