Real estate magnate Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton posted strong results Tuesday night as voters in five states cast ballots in a make or break moment for several presidential campaigns.
Both candidates, already their parties' front-runners, were projected to notch "significant" wins in the Florida primaries, according to NBC News. Trump was also projected to win primaries in North Carolina and Illinois, and he was the apparent winner in Missouri. Elsewhere on the Republican side, Ohio Gov. John Kasich secured a key win in his home state, NBC projected.
Clinton, meanwhile, swept the night with apparent wins in Illinois and Missouri and projected victories in the Democratic North Carolina and Ohio contests, NBC News reported.
"This is another super Tuesday for our campaign," Clinton said in an address after news of the Ohio projections. "We are moving closer to securing the Democratic party nomination and winning this election in November."
