CLEAN SWEEP: President Trump wins all 5 Republican Primary states on Super Tuesday

KEY POINTS — In a sweeping victory, President Donald J. Trump won all five of the states that held Republican Presidential primary elections on Tuesday, March 19.

On Tuesday, Trump won the Republican primaries in Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Kansas and Ohio. Biden did the same except in Florida, where Democrats had canceled their primary and opted to award all 224 of their delegates to Biden.

Pat Shackleford, an 84-year-old caregiver in Mesa, Arizona, said she voted for Trump in Arizona’s primary "to encourage him that the fight has been worthwhile, that more of us are behind him than maybe the media tells you.”

Shackleford's remarks are not incorrect, as conservative go-to Fox News even chose not to air President Trump's Ohio rally on Saturday.

In Ohio’s Republican Senate primary, Trump-backed businessman Bernie Moreno defeated two challengers, Ohio Secretary of State Frank Frank LaRose and Matt Dolan, whose family owns the Cleveland Guardians baseball team.

Moreno and Trump appeared together Saturday at a rally in Ohio where Trump praised his endorsed candidate as a “warrior” and made the now famous remarks that were he not to be elected, “The autoindustry will be a bloodbath.”
