According to Fox News projections, Donald Trump picked up two more primary election wins Tuesday night as voters in four states went to the polls to choose their favorite candidates. As polls closed in the first two states, Mississippi and Michigan, both showed Trump as the likely winner.
With over 75 percent of the state’s ballots counted, the billionaire front-runner had accumulated nearly half of all Mississippi votes. He is projected to pick up the state’s 20 delegates.
In Michigan, with roughly half of the votes reported as of this writing, the race was much closer. Trump has received about 37 percent of the vote as John Kasich and Ted Cruz remain competitive with 25.3 and 24 percent, respectively. Trump is projected to add 21 more delegates in this state, with Kasich picking up 15 and Cruz gaining 12.
