Clinton and Trump Win, Bush Suspends

An exiting day in both presidential primary-races ended with Jeb Bush suspending his campaign, after he only scored a single-digit result in the South Carolina Republican primary.

Donald Trump won South Carolina with 30+ points, while Marco Rubio regained his momentum by narrowly beating Ted Cruz for second place.

In Nevada, Hillary Clinton beat Bernie Sanders, which brings her back to track as the Democratic front-runner. Sanders managed to attract Latino voters, but the African-American vote went decisively to Clinton.

The parties are switching states next week, with the Nevada Republican Caucus on February 23 and the South Carolina Democratic Primary on February 27, before the Super Tuesday showdown on March 1.
