Trump Wins Republican Presidential Primary In Illinois

Donald Trump has won the Republican presidential primary in Illinois, days after he canceled a rally in Chicago due to security concerns.

His victory Tuesday comes after an earlier win in Florida and North Carolina. It increases his delegate lead over the rest of the Republican field.

That field shrank by one on Tuesday as Marco Rubio dropped out. But John Kasich captured his first victory of the nominating contest by winning his home state of Ohio.
