Tuesday primaries simply super for Clinton and Trump

A US presidential election battle between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton looks increasingly likely following the Super Tuesday primary elections.

By late yesterday afternoon, Mrs Clinton was projected to win in seven of the 12 states voting.

Her rival for the Democratic nomination, Bernie Sanders, looked to be home in four states and the Alaskan result was still to come.

In the Republican camp, Mr Trump was projected to win in seven states, Ted Cruz in two and Marco Rubio one.

In Alaska the voting margin was tight between Mr Trump and Mr Cruz, and in Colorado the Republicans' primary was reduced to unofficial status because of a decision by the state branch of the party.

At a victory rally in Palm Beach, Florida, Mr Trump told his adoring supporters: "Once we get all of this finished, I'm going to go after one person and that's Hillary Clinton."

In her victory speech, Mrs Clinton seemed to be alluding to Mr Trump when she said: "The stakes in this election have never been higher and the rhetoric we're hearing on the other side has never been lower."
