Trump, Clinton win big prizes on Western Tuesday

Print More

Two states, Arizona and Utah, held primaries for the Republicans and Democrats on Tuesday. Idaho also held a Democratic primary.

Donald Trump was declared the winner of all 58 Republican delegates in Arizona while Sen. Ted Cruz was favored to win Utah’s 40. Ohio Gov. John Kasich was running third there and drew criticism from the stop-Trump camp that he would draw votes away from Cruz.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton was declared the winner of 40 delegates in Arizona, which has more Democratic delegates than Utah and Idaho combined, guaranteeing she will widen her lead over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who won 16 delegates in Arizona.

Next up: March 26 Democratic caucuses in Alaska, Hawaii and Washington state.
