A string of Donald Trump primary victories Tuesday night, including a knockout win against Marco Rubio in Florida, as well as a first win by John Kasich in his home state of Ohio did little to change the direction of the Republican presidential race — except to add more uncertainty and speculation.
Trump kept his substantial delegate lead by winning at least three contests. In defeating Rubio in the senator’s home state of Florida and pushing him out of the race, Trump won the biggest prize on the map, including all 99 of its delegates. He also is projected to win Illinois and North Carolina.
“We’re going to go forward, and we’re going to win,” Trump told supporters in Palm Beach, Fla. “But more importantly, we’re going to win for the country.”
Yet Kasich vowed to stay in the race, buoyed by his Ohio victory, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz showed no signs of slowing down — as Kasich in particular banks on the prospect of a contested convention in July, leaving unclear when the raucous GOP primary race might draw to a close.
