On March 5, nominating contests are anticipated to be held in more than a dozen significant states, including California, Maine, Texas, North Carolina, Utah, and Virginia. Additionally, it falls one week before Georgia’s primary on March 12.
Indeed, throughout the upcoming year, Trump’s campaign schedule will likely require some juggling as he manages several trials, some of which, like the federal case in D.C., coincide with crucial election dates.

According to NBC News, the presiding U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan stated that “setting a trial date does not depend and should not depend on a defendant’s personal and professional obligations.” The judge said, “Mr. Trump, like any defendant, will have to make the trial date work, regardless of his schedule.”
Letitia James, the attorney general of New York, has filed a fraud lawsuit against Trump, and it is scheduled to go to trial on October 2. This is the first of two civil cases that will be heard in court.
