Northeast Super Tuesday: Trump, Clinton win big

Five states voted Tuesday in primaries as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton nearly completed a sweep of the five states. 

Trump has been declared the Republican winner in races in all five states of Pennsylvania, Delaware, Rhode Island, Maryland and Connecticut. Clinton won in Connecticut, Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania. Clinton's Democratic challenger Bernie Sanders, meanwhile, won the primary in Rhode Island. 

According to the Associated Press, Trump has at least 950 delegates, and is approaching a near 400-delegate lead over Cruz. 

On the Democratic side, Clinton has more than 90 percent of the delegates needed to win the party's nomination. Clinton has 2,141 combined delegates, compared to 1,321 for Sanders. 

Republicans technically had 172 delegates up for grabs Tuesday, but that is a bit of a misnomer. Pennsylvania' tonight's largest prize with 71 total delegates, only doles 17 delegates out to candidates based off tonight's results. The rest are considered "unbound" delegates.
