Trump Wins Northern Mariana Islands, 9 Delegates

Donald Trump has won the Republican caucus in the Northern Mariana Islands, a remote U.S. territory that consists of 15 islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Trump took home 73 percent of the vote and will win all nine delegates, according to Jason Osborne, who was the executive director of the local Republican Party.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz followed behind with 24 percent. Both Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio made barely a blip — Kasich took 2 percent and Rubio 1 percent of 471 total votes.

Osborne — who is now advising Trump — previously worked as a senior communications adviser to retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who endorsed Trump last week.

Last week, the governor of the Northern Mariana Islands, Ralph Torres, threw his support behind Trump.

“I encouraged CNMI GOP voters to come out and exercise their right and vote for their preferred presidential nominee. I am overwhelmed by the turnout and their support for my endorsement of Mr. Donald Trump. I thank all the voters for participating in this important process. The attention the CNMI has received this presidential cycle from all the candidates has truly shown that our votes matter,” Torres said in a statement.

  1. Thank you for some other informative site. Where else may I
    get that type of information written in such a perfect method?

    I have a venture that I am simply now working on, and I
    have been at the glance out for such info.

  2. Patrice et Nicolas,le plus important aprés une enfance et une adolescence pas toute rose, c´est de ne pas continuer avec ses propres enfants, de ne pas leur faire le cadeau empoisonné des névroses que des parents mal dans leur peau ont pu nous laisser en héritage.J´adore les pins sylvestres même si leur amitié peut être parfois collante!Autre idée pour Saint-Pierre: des pièces en chocolat.1213

  3. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough people are speaking intelligently about.

    Now i’m very happy I found this during my search for something relating to this.

  4. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a colleague who
    has been conducting a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch due to the fact that
    I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this….
    Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to talk about this matter here on your internet site.
