6:38 am
florida and ohio among other states, voting in what are called winner take all primaries. it was another dramatic victory for donald trump with wins in michigan, mississippi and hawaii. all of them victories that he celebrated in double digits. trump who has been viewed as one of the most polarizing politicians in the country right now made his best effort to try to bring the republican party together. it was certainly a stinging defeat for anti-trump forces who have become increasingly well funded. they failed in their first test to try to blunt his trajectory toward the nomination. marco rubio, zero delegates last night. he's the one who suffered the worst night of all. ted cruz and kasich, kasich with a sec place, perhaps a third place finish, tieing with cruz in michigan. both men intend to stay in the race. the longer they stay in it, the more divided the field reman which is ultimately serves donald trump. vai and lauren?
