Facing no serious opponent, Trump still receives record number of primary votes in Texas

(USA Features) Though there was no serious GOP challenger on the ballot, President Donald Trump still managed to rake in more than 1.8 million votes in Texas on Super Tuesday, a record for a Republican in an uncontested primary.

With more than 99 percent of precincts reporting, the president received 1,871,515 total votes, Breitbart News reported.

That total is more than the top four remaining Democrats combined, so far, as currently former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Michael Bloomberg, and Elizabeth Warren have earned a total of 1.7 million votes in Texas, with 91.3 percent of the vote reporting.

Fifteen years ago, 635,948 Republican Texans voted for then-President George W. Bush in the 2004 Republican primary. In 2012, 520,410 Democrats voted for then-President Barack Obama in their primary.

Texan Republicans did have a Senate primary in the state this year, but incumbent Sen. John Cornyn was the easy winner with 74 percent of the vote.
