The Republican race for the White House is tightening ahead of pivotal clashes next week in Florida and Ohio.
Donald Trump remains the front-runner and is poised for a good night on Tuesday, with polls showing him favored to win three of the four GOP contests on tap, in Michigan, Mississippi and Idaho.
Trump has seen his leads narrow over rivals in Michigan, Ohio and Florida, however, making it clear the race for the GOP nomination isn’t over after a weekend in which Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) gained on Trump in total delegates.
“If Trump comes first in Michigan, then the weekend was a detour,” former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) told The Hill in a phone interview. “But if you’ve got the same late deciders working against him, and Kasich comes in first [in Michigan] … then you’re in a different game.”
In Michigan, the biggest prize on Tuesday, Ohio Gov. John Kasich is making a late charge.
