On March 15th, 5 more states participated in the Democratic and Republican primaries: Florida, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, and North Carolina.

Today’s elections marked very crucial turning points for the 2016 presidential candidates.

After losing in his own state, Florida Senator Marco Rubio has terminated his campaign. Rubio only reached 27% of the GOP vote and was beaten by Donald Trump with 46% of the vote.

Ohio Governor John Kasich, after  not winning a single state, has achieved victory in his own home state. Despite trailing behind Trump in the polls, Kasich collected nearly 47% of Ohio Republicans’ votes.

Donald Trump celebrates four more projected wins in Florida, Illinois, Missouri, and North Carolina. Ted Cruz took second place in those states, with the exception of Ohio, in which Trump came second.
