    Super Tuesday Recap

    Super Tuesday, the largest day for presidential primaries in the U.S., saw Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton remain in the lead for the Republican and Democratic nominations (respectively). There were 11 states at stake for both Republican and Democratic candidates.
    Clinton gained a sizable lead on Sen. Bernie Sanders, winning seven states and 504 delegates to his four states and 340 delegates. While Trump gained the most delegates in the GOP with 237, freshman Sen. Ted Cruz was not far behind with 209 delegates.
    While Clinton is the undeniable front-runner for the Democratic nomination and Trump continues to increase his lead, the primaries are far from over; the multiple remaining winner-take-all states could especially shift the balance.
