Super Tuesday: Hillary Clinton captures seven states
March 2, Washington: Democrat Hillary Clinton has won seven states and Donald Trump at least seven in Super Tuesday elections, the biggest day of the primary campaign of presidential elections.
Clinton widened her lead over Democratic rival Bernie Sanders as minority voters helped her secure key victories in seven states. Sanders won four states and pledged to stay in the race, but failed to broaden his appeal beyond whites, reports said.
Clinton carried Georgia, Virginia, Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas and Massachusetts while Sanders won his home state of Vermont as well as Oklahoma, Minnesota and Colorado.
Clinton and her allies have already shifted some attention to Donald Trump, casting the Republican front-runner as divisive and unprepared to lead the country.
Clinton’s win in seven states has now earned her 441 of the 865 delegates at stake for the evening. Sanders is on track to win at least 262.
