Donald Trump has defeated Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the North Carolina Republican Primary, adding another delegate-rich swing state to The Donald’s category. Mr. Trump will notch somewhere around 29 delegates in the Tar Heel State, while Sen. Cruz will haul in around around 26 delegates.
The big delegate haul of the night came from Florida, where Mr. Trump netted 99 delegates. But he came up short in Ohio, where hometown Gov. John Kasich took the 66 delegates in the Buckeye State. However, Gov. Kasich has little path forward, needing to win 110% of the remaining delegates.
