Oh No: Donald Trump Just Got One Huge Step Closer to the Republican Nomination

Tuesday's primary results confirm our worst fears.

Published March 23, 2016

The latest Super Tuesday helped clarify the Republican presidential race in a big way. While Ted Cruz won Utah, party front-runner Donald Trump won Arizona, a winner-take-all state that gives Trump 58 more delegates towards a nomination. While his most recent win does not guarantee him the bid, it keeps him well on the path of clinching it outright before the Republican National Convention in July and also puts him far ahead of the other candidates left in the race, Cruz and John Kasich.

Following his win, Trump has been tweeting up a storm, thanking Arizona for the win, and continuing to critique Cruz who he now calls, "Lyin' Ted."

With many more primaries left to be won and 944 delegates still on the table, it is possible that the Republican party enters its' national convention with a contested nomination. If neither Trump or Cruz are able to reach the 1,237 delegates needed to run unopposed, all hell breaks loose at the convention in July.

Many believe that Trump is having so much success because he is voicing beliefs that Republicans have had for years. Catch up on Trump and his baffling campaign with BET News:
