The recently concluded Super Tuesday 3 voting was an important round for both the Republicans with John Kasich and Donald Trump still battling to get the party’s nomination. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton emerged as the winner for the democrat side.
The Final Count
Clinton won in Illinois, Ohio, Florida and North Carolina. Trump won in Florida, Illinois and North Carolina while John Kasich won in Ohio. Marco Rubio bowed out of the presidential race.
Clinton for Democrats
On the Democrats’ side, Clinton won four of five Democrats primaries. After winning in the Florida and Ohio primaries, Clinton reportedly said that she’s the only Democrat candidate who can unite diverse demographics.
“We are moving closer to securing the Democratic Party nomination and winning this election in November. We are going to stand up for American workers and make sure no one takes advantage of us, not China — not Wall Street, not overpaid corporate executives,” Clinton addressed the public after winning the recent primaries as quoted by the Fox 13 News.
Earlier, CNN projected that Clinton is likely to win in the North Carolina primary, where Trump emerged as winner for the Republican side. Clinton, who is a popular candidate for the minorities voters is 300 delegates ahead of its rival, Bernie Sanders.
Rubio out of the game
Florida Senator Marco Rubio has finally ended his dream to the White House as he suffered a major loss in GOP primaries. Now that Rubio is already out of the game, republicans who are not comfortable with Trump representing their party had to look at Kasich, Ohio Representative, as the alternative bet.
Although Trump won in three of five GOP primaries, Kasich’s victory had deprived Trump of at least 66 delegates. It’s Kasich’s first victory since the 2016 campaign have begun. Trump, who won in Florida, Illinois, and North Carolina primaries, has to reach at least 1,237 delegates to win the party’s nomination, the CNN reports.
