John Kasich Takes Ohio; Hillary Clinton Sweeps Florida, Ohio & North Carolina


John Kasich Takes Ohio; Hillary Clinton Sweeps Florida, Ohio & North Carolina

“This may be one of the most consequential campaigns of our lifetimes,” said Hillary Clinton tonight in a victory speech, after she trounced opponent Bernie Sanders in swing states Florida (65% of the votes to Sanders’s 33), Ohio (64% to 35) and North Carolina (56 to 40). Touting her experience at Obama’s side during the challenges of his presidency—including sending Navy Seals after Osama bin Laden and “saving the auto industry”—she was strong, confident, and upbeat, clearly buoyed by her wins after Sanders’s surprise upset in Michigan last week. “Our commander in chief has to be able to defend our country, not embarrass it,” she said, swiping at Trump before lobbing more specific complaints about his policy suggestions. “We should be building bridges, not walls.”

Elsewhere, after Trump’s win in Florida led Marco Rubio to finally stop beating the dead horse that was his campaign, John Kasich got a boost by winning his home state of Ohio, a development that at least slightly enlivens a Republican campaign that’s all but foregone to Señor King Cheeto, Demon Barber of the Upper East Side. With 22% of precincts reporting, Kasich had 43% of the vote and Trump had 35%, according to MSNBC. Who is Ted Cruz, again?
