Washington: Major victories were in store for Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and John Kasich which have significantly reshaped the presidential race while a major defeat in Florida impelled Marco Rubio to drop out from the presidential race.
According to CNN, Clinton swept Florida and North Carolina stopping Bernie Sanders in his tracks in the industrial Midwest by taking Ohio.
Meanwhile, the Republican Party swerved closer to a historic contested convention after Kasich, the Ohio governor, held his own state and deprived Trump of its 66 delegates.
However, an unfazed Trump prevailed in the biggest contest of the night by sweeping all off Florida’s 99 delegates which helped force Rubio out of the race after failing to win his own state and to unite the Republican establishment against Trump.
Clinton’s win in North Carolina completed her sweep of Southern states where she has enjoyed strong support from African-American voters.
“We are moving closer to securing the Democratic Party nomination and winning this election in November,” Clinton said in a victory speech in West Palm Beach, Florida. (ANI)
