Donald J. Trump defeated Nikki Haley within the North Dakota Republican caucuses on Monday, in line with The Related Press, as he resumed his march to the nomination after a victory by Ms. Haley within the Washington, D.C., main the day earlier than.

The competition resumed Ms. Haley’s string of defeats within the nominating contests thus far, most by double-digit margins, starting with the Iowa caucuses in January and persevering with by the Michigan main final Tuesday.

Ms. Haley, a former governor of South Carolina, had briefly interrupted her shedding streak with a victory within the nation’s capital, profitable about 63 % of the vote on Sunday. The competition was small — simply over 2,000 Republicans voted within the overwhelmingly Democratic metropolis — however awarded Ms. Haley 19 delegates, almost doubling her whole.
