Hillary Clinton has won the Democratic presidential primary in Mississippi, riding a continuing wave of support from black voters in Southern states to claim her latest victory over Bernie Sanders.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump won the Mississippi Republican primary, as well as the Michigan primary.
The former secretary of state will proportionally be awarded a share of the state’s 36 delegates. Clinton had already earned 1,134 delegates in previous contests, versus 502 that have gone to Sanders. This was her 12th state so far.
Clinton’s number is roughly half the amount she needs to clinch the Democratic nomination for president. Her win in Mississippi comes off weekend contests in which Sanders won three out of four states.
Also on Tuesday, voters in Michigan, Idaho and Hawaii voted for nominees.
Trump edged out Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in Mississippi to post his 13th state victory of the 2016 White House race, and also won his 14th in Michigan.
The billionaire businessman extends his lead for the highly contested Republican nomination amid a growing outcry by party elites against his unorthodox candidacy.
Heading into Tuesday’s contests, Trump led the Republican field with 384 delegates, followed by Cruz with 300, Marco Rubio with 151 and John Kasich with 37. Winning the GOP nomination requires 1,237 delegates.
