  Primary Elections

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump easily won Florida last night in the state’s key primary election.

Tuesday’s contests, with more than 14 million votes cast in five states, marked a turning point in both parties’ presidential primary campaigns.

Democrats and Republicans can now confidently predict which candidates will likely have the most delegates at their conventions in July: Trump and Clinton, both hold commanding leads.

But challengers John Kasich, Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz are not giving up the fight.

We discuss the results of Tuesday's primary elections with Dr. Michael McDonald, professor of political science at the University of Florida.
