Tallahassee, Florida (PPD) — President Donald Trump has clinched the 2020 Republican nomination scoring decisive wins against token opposition in Florida and Illinois. The president will now surpass the 1,276 delegate threshold.

While largely uncontested and only facing token challengers from NeverTrump, it was the earliest calendar date mathematically for a Republican to clinch the nomination.

He set records for votes received by an incumbent in nearly every contest thus far. It began in Iowa and New Hampshire and is likely to include the contests Tuesday in the Sunshine State and the Land of Lincoln.

President Trump had 1,141 delegates heading into Tuesday and only needed 135 more to clinch the nomination. Florida and Illinois award delegates on a winner-take-all basis, meaning the call in the president’s adopted home state put him over in the count.
