Donald Trump

Businessman Donald Trump had a similarly strong night winning Florida, North Carolina, and Illinois. However he couldn’t overcome Governor John Kasich in his home state of Ohio. Trump’s big win in Florida forced Florida Senator Marco Rubio out of the presidential race Tuesday night, after such a poor showing in his own home state. While the Republican establishment looks for ways to stop the juggernaut that is Trump, it becomes increasingly clear that he will be the Republican nominee for President of the United States.

After Hillary Clinton’s big night, her campaign looks to shift its focus to the general election, while Bernie Sanders chances of getting the Democratic nomination have decreased, he looks to make a big push in upcoming primary states of Arizona, Hawaii, Washington, Alaska, Utah, and Idaho all who vote before this month is up. His campaign is also looking forward to more northern and left leaning states like New York and California, whose large delegate counts could quickly help him close the gap with Clinton in the race.
