Washington - Donald Trump has won the Republican presidential primary in West Virginia, adding to his claim on the GOP’s nomination.

The billionaire businessman became the party’s presumptive nominee after his victory last week in Indiana, which led his last remaining rivals to drop out of the race.

Anne Ashley is a 66-year-old substitute teacher’s aide from Scott Depot, West Virginia. She and her husband Jim say they were supporters of one of those former rivals, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

On Tuesday, they voted for Trump.

Anne Ashley says she thinks Trump is “becoming more aware of the gravity of becoming president and becoming more composed.”

Jim Ashley says now that Trump is the presumptive nominee, it’s time for him to unify the Republican Party and to bring other candidates that ran against him into the fold. He says Trump “thinks ‘I can do it on my own,’ but he’s wrong.”
