On Tuesday, Nebraska and West Virginia hosted primaries for the GOP and DNC. For the GOP, Trump, being the only candidate still in the race won the 70 total delegates that were up for grabs and is now only 100 delegates away from reaching the magic number of 1287.
Trump has now shifted his campaign strategy to the general election and Hillary Clinton, who he has started to go after, dubbing her, "Crooked Hillary". There has also been a lot of chatter surrounding Trump's VP pick as well as meetings that Trump had Thursday with House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell.
Both meetings went very well and it seems the Republican party is starting to unify and gearing up for the general election.
On the Democratic side of things, only West Virginia was up for grabs and Bernie won and picked up 18 delegates, with Hillary picking up 11. Bernie has made it clear he has no intentions of dropping out until the convention, despite being down by hundreds of delegates.
He has very loyal supporters and has encouraged them that he still has a path to the White House. For Sanders to make up ground, he will need to continue to win at the pace he's winning with pledged delegates and then will have to try and lobby the super delegates, who can switch candidates that he is the better nominee.
Bernie certainly is still a major threat to Hillary Clinton, whom likely would prefer to focus her attention on Trump. Next week we will be moving to Oregon, where Bernie remains very popular and is likely to be the winner. We will have it covered, as always.
