Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will easily win their respected delegate-rich Georgia primary, while Bernie Sanders won his home state of Vermont. In the Peach State, a GOP candidate that receives a majority of the vote–more than 50%–is allocated all 3 of the district’s delegates. Trump currently has roughly half and teetering above and below 50%.

Clinton also won Virginia in the Democratic Super Tuesday race, while the Republican primary was initially too close to call, with Trump only slightly ahead of Marco Rubio for first place. UPDATE: Trump has won the Virginia Republican primary. The top two are comfortably ahead of Ted Cruz, John Kasich and Ben Carson.

UPDATE: Hillary Clinton wins the Arkansas Democratic primary, easily.

But the biggest electoral prize of te hour was Georgia. On the Republican side, Rubio and Cruz are battling for second place, while Trump won by a comfortable margin.

It’s also too early to call the Republican race in Vermont, where Kasich, who campaigned heavily there, is surprisingly competitive with Trump.
