Hillary Clinton's path to becoming the first female presidential nominee of one of the two major political parties just got clearer: She dominated in North Carolina, Florida and, somewhat surprisingly, in Ohio.
She won Illinois, which was not called by CNN until about 12:15 a.m.
As of this writing, she's trailing slightly in Missouri and leading slightly in Illinois.
Looking at which votes have yet to be counted, it's possible her position could switch in both states; either way, by winning big in the big states and by keeping it close in the rest, she will extend her delegate lead tonight—big-time.
She won in Missouri by approximately .2%. That's POINT TWO. Something like 1,531 votes.
She was classy in her speech toward Bernie Sanders, who had a really bad night. Sanders apparently didn't congratulate Hillary in his speech. WTF?
I can only surmise that in Michigan, lots of cross-over voters who figured she had it in the bag voted as Republicans, and the surprise loss there lit a fire under her supporters in Ohio. Still, her dominance in the historically important swing state of Ohio is a shocker.
