Donald Trump emerged victorious in Tuesday night’s Nevada caucuses in a win that continues to bolster his momentum.
ABC, NBC, Fox, and CNN all called the race for Trump just as the caucus sites closed at 9 p.m. Pacific Time. The projection came with none of the precincts reporting.
With 7.2 percent of precincts reporting, Trump was ahead with 43.18 percent of the vote, followed by Rubio with 24.45 percent and Ted Cruz with 21.62 percent.
Trump’s win comes as he sweeps all ideological segments, according to MSNBC’s exit polling. He edged out Cruz with the very conservative segment, 38 percent to Cruz’s 34 percent. And he blew out the field with somewhat conservatives, of which he won 47 percent, and with moderates, of which he won 56 percent.
He also topped Ted Cruz with evangelical voters, winning 41 percent of the bloc.
