WASHINGTON—Donald Trump has won the Republican presidential primary in Nebraska, a second victory in Tuesday’s elections for the presumptive GOP nominee.
Among his backers in the state was Don Fricke, a 76-year-old dentist from Lincoln. He says he voted for Trump because the billionaire businessman is a political outsider.
Fricke says he wants a candidate who will work to lower taxes and defend the country by strengthening the military, and he sees those qualities in Trump.
He adds that he thinks Trump has “a very good chance” against likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the general election. Fricke says of Clinton, “Hillary’s got too much baggage.”
Earlier today, Ted Cruz, who had dropped out of the primary, said that he might re-enter the race if he won Nebraska.
