President Donald Trump was the near-unanimous winner Monday night of the 2020 Iowa Republican caucuses, receiving only token opposition from two challengers within his party.
Although the vast share of attention on this year’s Iowa caucuses was focused on Democratic candidates vying to oppose Trump, the Republican Party of Iowa still held traditional meetings statewide for nearly 1,700 precincts to allow the party faithful to have their voices heard.
What those Republicans said Monday: They are overwhelmingly behind the president.
With 95% of Iowa counties reporting Monday night, Trump had received almost 97% of the 26,484 GOP votes cast. The Associated Press called the caucus victory in Trump’s favor at 7:26 p.m, shortly after the Republican caucuses began.
