Results from the Republican Super Tuesday contests.

Donald Trump’s status as the frontrunner for the Republican nomination for president seemed unlikely to change after the Super Tuesday contests, earning a big batch of delegates with wins in Georgia, Tennessee, AlabamaMassachusettsVirginia and possibly more.

[score]Ted Cruz[/score], who needed victories to stay alive in the primary, scored a must-win in his delegate-rich home state of Texas and in Oklahoma. The conservative senator, who also won the Iowa caucuses last month, remains the only candidate who has beaten Trump so far with those wins.

[score]Marco Rubio[/score], who has been attempting to portray himself as the top alternative to Trump, still has not won a single state.

Voters in 11 states went to the polls to select a Republican presidential nominee on Tuesday. Polls have also closed — and votes are still being counted — in Arkansas, Vermont and Minnesota. Voting continues in Alaska, where polls close at midnight EST. More delegates are up for grabs on Super Tuesday than any other day in the Republican race for president.
