Mar 20, 2024 | Political News

Former President Donald Trump made a clean sweep of the presidential primary contests Tuesday while one of his close allies managed to advance in a key race down the ballot in the battleground of Ohio.

Republicans held nominating contests in ArizonaFloridaIllinoisKansas, and Ohio on Tuesday, while the party also chose its nominee in the pivotal Ohio Senate race.

Trump was projected to win every state, a development that hardly came as a shock given all of his primary challengers of any standing had already dropped out of the race.
