Another big night of primaries produced big winners and losers among the presidential candidates.
As NewsOne reported Tuesday, after losing his home state of Florida, Sen. Marco Rubio decided to suspend his campaign. Republican front-runner Donald Trump won primary elections in Florida, Illinois, and North Carolina, but suffered a huge loss in Ohio to Governor John Kasich.
Missouri is still too close to call between Sen. Ted Cruz and GOP frontrunner Donald Trump. At the time of this report, Trump held a slim lead over Cruz: 40.8 percent to 40.6 percent.
On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton almost swept Tuesday night’s primary contests, winning Florida, Illinois, North Carolina, and Ohio. Missouri is also still too close to call, with Clinton holding 49.6 percent of the primary election votes. Her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders is hanging in with 49.4 percent of the votes.
It seems like everyone – including the GOP – is attempting to stop the runaway political train that is Donald Trump, the Republican presidential front-runner. And the last line of defense for Trump’s opponents may be in July at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
Trump has garnered the political spotlight during this presidential election cycle by using inflammatory rhetoric, coded language, bombastic statements, and inciting violence at his rallies, forcing the Republican establishment to push back against his candidacy.
NewsOne Now panelist Steve Munisteri, a three-term Texas GOP State Chairman, broke down the math that could set up a brokered Republican convention and stop Trump from capturing the nomination.
