Opinion polls heading into the voting had shown Trump leading in most of the 12 states up for grabs, raising the possibility of a big night that would intensify worries among Republican leaders who fear the billionaire could inflict long-term damage on the party. … [Read more...] about Trump, Clinton rack up big wins on U.S. Super Tuesday
R epublican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton scored early primary wins on Tuesday in Georgia, CNN projected, as the two presidential front-runners looked to take command of their party nominating battles on the 2016 campaign's biggest night of voting.

Exit polls indicated that Virginia and Vermont were too close to call for Republicans as balloting ended in the two states, networks said. Clinton, the former secretary of state, also was projected to win Virginia and hoped to take a big step toward wrapping up her nomination fight with rival Bernie Sanders, a democratic socialist U.S. senator from Vermont.

Photo: Reuters/Jonathan Ernst Front-runner Donald Trump is in position to take firm control of the Republican presidential race when 11 states vote on Tuesday, an outcome likely to intensify concerns among party leaders that the brash billionaire has hijacked the party. In the Democratic race, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton can go a long way toward silencing concerns about her candidacy with big victories of her own over democratic socialist Bernie Sanders on Super Tuesday. Trump was leading in nearly all the states that will hold primary contests or caucuses, most of them in the American South. The lone exception appeared to be Texas, where U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, who represents that state, enjoyed a narrow lead and was in desperate need of a victory.
