Donald Trump won big on Super Tuesday, taking 12 of 13 states so far, and putting him less than 250 delegates away from the 1215 delegates required to secure the nomination.

On Tuesday, Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennesse, Texas, Utah, Vermont and Virginia, totaling 865 delegates, casted ballots to determine who the Republican nominee will be.

Trump easily took Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennesse, Texas and Virginia. Haley narrowly pulled off a win in Vermont. Alaska and Utah were too close to call at the time of this article.

Trump ended the night with at least 979 total delegates and is likely to offically lock up the nomination before the end of March. Loan Republican challenger Nikki Haley has received just 92 delegates so far.

American Samoa is scheduled to hold their caucus on March 8th followed by Georgia, Hawaii, Mississippi and Washington that are scheduled to hold elections on March 12th.
