Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton made big steps in their attempt at winning their parties’ nominations for the White House, after scoring important wins in the Super Tuesday primary, where 12 states were called to choose their favorites.
Trump wins at a big difference. Again.
According to the partial results, Donald Trump won in 7 states, while his main rivals, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, managed to win one and two states. As for the Democratic Side, the former First Lady obtained victories in seven states, while Bernie Sanders won just four states.
Hillary Clinton’s Super Tuesday consisted in victories in Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, Texas, and surprisingly, Massachusetts, a states where Bernie Sanders was expected to be the favorite, according to NBC News.
On the other side, Donald Trump, thanks to the endorsements he received lately, scored in Massachusetts, Virginia, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, Arkansas and Vermont.
Like expected, Ted Cruz was the winner in his home state, Texas, but also in Oklahoma. After the results were announced, he tried to convince the rest of the remaining GOP candidates who don’t seem to have any chances left – Carson and Kasich – to exit the race.
Ted Cruz is looking for potential big endorsers
“For the candidates who have not yet won a state, who have not racked up significant delegates, I ask for you to prayerfully consider our coming together,” Cruz said.
As for the third Republican candidate that can still make an impact, Marco Rubio, he picked his only victory in Minnesota, making Ben Carson and John Kasich the only candidates without a Super Tuesday victory. Still, the two aren’t willing to suspend their campaigns, looking forward to the upcoming primaries.
For the moment, it’s obvious which candidates have the biggest chances of winning the nomination, so the focus could mode on those fighting for second place and potential endorsements, if anybody decides to retire.
