Donald Trump wins liberal northeast, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, Rhode Island some of Pennsylvania

Donald Trump scored huge victories Tuesday in the race for the White House as the GOP frontrunner won  Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut and Rhode Island. In Pennsylvania Trump landed the 17 bound delegates, receiving at least 105 of the 118 bound delegates overall, extending his lead over Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

“This to me was our biggest night,” Trump said in his victory speech. “I consider myself the presumptive nominee…As far as I am concerned, it’s over,” he declared.

“The best way to beat the system is to have evenings like this,” Trump said.

The most current delegate count has Trump at 950 with Cruz at 560 as the race heads back west. Moreover, Cruz reportedly cleaned up all of the unbound delegates in Pennsylvania.

“I’ve got good news for you tonight, this campaign moves back to more favorable terrain,” Cruz told a crowd in Indiana, referring to the northeast as lost territory in the general election.

Next up is the primary in Indiana where 57 delegates are up for grabs, followed by Nebraska and West Virginia on May 10. Over the next two weeks 127 delegates are at stake with Cruz likely to win most of those, if not all of them and close the gap again between he and Trump.

Most experts are predicting the neither candidate can get to the needed 1,237 delegates to win the nomination outright and the Republican National Convention will hold a second vote unleashing the delegates to vote how they like, a swift greatly favoring Cruz over Trump.
