Donald Trump defeats Cruz-Kasich alliance across northeast.
MARYLAND (CyHAN)- As polls close, billionaire candidate Donald Trump is the projected winner in all five states participating in Tuesday's primaries, adding to his lead.
After a sweeping victory in New York last week, Trump adds to his delegate lead with projected victories in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and Rhode Island by significant margins.
This was the first day of primary contests since Trump reshuffled his campaign staff. It is also the first since Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich formed a strategic alliance, attempting to deny Trump the nomination.
While it remains to be seen if the billionaire will gain the 1,237 delegates necessary to achieve a first-ballot victory at the Republican convention in July, he will undoubtedly enter with more pledged delegates than either Cruz or Kasich.
The next Republican primary race takes place in Indiana on May 3. (Cihan/Trend Az) Cihan CyHAN
