Trump Wins Republican Iowa Caucus Over Token Opposition

(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump has easily won the Republican caucus in Iowa, beginning an anticlimatic contest for his party’s nomination for a second term.

The Associated Press called the race at 7:25 p.m. Central Time, just 25 minutes after Iowans convened for the first presidential nominating events of 2020.

Trump had 97% of the GOP vote at the time of the call. Two challengers — former Massachusetts Governor William Weld and former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh — each had about 1%.
