Former President Donald Trump won a decisive victory in Iowa's GOP primary caucus on Monday, beating out the other top contenders with 51% of the total vote.

As the first election in the 2024 presidential cycle, the Iowa caucus is considered a political bellwether, giving the winner the momentum needed to become their party's chosen candidate.

With Trump earning the majority of the votes, fourth-place finisher Vivek Ramaswamy already announced he would be suspending his campaign, and many are asking Ron Desantis and Nikki Haley, who finished second and third, respectively, to do the same.

"Can we stop pretending this is an actual primary race and get to the business of defeating Joe Biden? #MAGA," U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) posted on X.

U.S. Sen. Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) and U.S. Reps. Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) and Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville) also congratulated Trump on his big win.

"Congratulations, President Trump! A decisive victory," Carl said.

"Congratulations to President Trump on his resounding victory in Iowa!" Britt posted. "It's time to make Joe Biden a one-term president and put hardworking American families first again."

"Congratulations to Donald Trump on an historic night in Iowa!" Aderholt said. "The sooner we get this primary behind us, the sooner we can focus all of our efforts and resources into defeating Joe Biden and the Democrats in November."

U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) took to Facebook to relay his approval of the Iowa outcome.

"Congratulations to President Trump for winning the Iowa Caucus! Record margins!" Moore said.
