Big Super Tuesday Wins for Trump and Clinton

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Super Tuesday

Super Tuesday has passed and we witnessed Clinton and Trump take home the biggest leads. While Cruz did not take the lead over Trump, he did win the much coveted state of Texas, along with Clinton. Both of their Texas wins were heavily backed by the Latino vote in the state.

Both of the night’s winners, Trump and Clinton, took home wins in seven states. Clinton was confident over her big win and aware that Trump is currently her biggest opponent on the Republican side. She addressed her supporters by stating, “…We got work to do [but] that work, is not to make America great again. America never stopped being great. We have to make America whole.”

The biggest loss of the night was taken home by Rubio who only won Minnesota, yet he stayed collected and talked in an interview about the wins that would be taking place for him later on in the race. As for Bernie Sanders, he managed to take home four states but lacked the minority vote needed to push him ahead.

Meanwhile, Trump fed off his victory and claimed that he would be the one to unify the Republican Party in order to make sure they were unstoppable. Democratic front-runner, Hillary Clinton, not only commented on Trump’s slogan on needing to make America great again, but also stated that “…the rhetoric we’re hearing on the other side has never been lower.” Trump fired back at Clinton’s comments by saying, “[Clinton has] been there for so long…if she hasn’t straightened it out by now, she’s not going to straighten it out in the next four years.”

Trump’s win comes as a blow to the other Republican candidates. Rubio stated that he was going to fight against Trump in order to avoid “hand[ing] over our party to a dangerous con artist.” Whilst Cruz called for the other candidates to drop out of the race and support his bid in order to unite.
