Donald Trump swept to victory Tuesday in delegate-rich primaries in Michigan and Mississippi, Fox News projects, regaining momentum after his stunning march through the primaries was slowed over the weekend – while Hillary Clinton once again found herself faced with the prospect of splitting the night’s contests with rival Bernie Sanders.
Trump immediately tried to use his latest wins to sideline the remaining competition. At a press conference at his golf club in Juniper, Fla., he said of his remaining rivals, “They’re pretty much all gone.”
Clinton, meanwhile, notched a resounding win over Vermont Sen. Sanders in Mississippi, thanks in part to her overwhelming support from black voters
But she is locked in a surprisingly close battle for the top spot in Michigan, where Sanders leads in early returns.
