Super Tuesday Wrap-Up!

So, here are the results of yesterday's primaries:

Donald Trump swept all five states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.

Hillary Clinton won four: Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Congratulations to Clinton, who moves one step closer to making history by being the first woman ever to secure the Democratic nomination and the White House!

Bernie Sanders won Rhode Island. Congratulations to Sanders, who is the first Jewish presidential candidate ever to win the Rhode Island primary!

Here's how the delegates shook out:

Trump walked away with all of the Republican delegates that were up for grabs, except for 5 awarded to John Kasich and 1 awarded to Ted Cruz in Rhode Island.

Clinton walked away with 194 delegates. Sanders walked away with 129.

The most exciting thing of the entire night for me was when Hillary Clinton, during her victory speech in Philly, pushed back on Donald Trump having said that she's got nothing going for her but the "woman card."

Said Clinton: "The other day, Mr. Trump accused me of playing the, quote, woman card. Well, if fighting for women's healthcare and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in!"
