Trump won 97.1 percent of the vote. Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, who polled in second place, at 1.3 percent, continues to run a long-shot challenge against Trump. Weld said he is not worried about the result. He noted that the New Hampshire primary will determine the 2020 presidential race, and ultimately determine whether he can unseat Trump.
Iowa Republican caucus vote-counting nearly finished. Participation clost to 30,000, far more than last GOP incumbent president year, 2004, when it was 8,000. At moment, Trump has 97.09% of vote. Totals: Trump 28,889; Walsh 352; Weld 376; other 139. https://t.co/TPngSPxBQn pic.twitter.com/LlDKSo9pd8
