the democratic party nomination and winning this election in november. you know, because of all of you and our supporters across the country, our campaign has earned more votes than any other candidate, democrat or republican. [ cheers and applause ] and -- and i want to congratulate senator sanders for the vigorous campaign he's waging. now, today all of you in the states where contests were held voted to break down the barriers that hold us all back so every one of us can share in the promise of america. you voted.
[ cheers and applause ] you voted. you voted for our tomorrow to be better than our yesterday. tomorrow where all of us do our part and everyone has a chance to live up to his or her god-given potential. [ cheers and applause ] because that's how america can give up to its potential, too. now, we need you to keep working. keep volunteering. keep contributing at hillaryclinton.com. please. please, join the 950,000 supporters who already have contributed. most less than $100. because our campaign depends on small donations for the majority of our support. we can't do this without you. so if you've been waits for the right moment, now's the time to
come join us. [ cheers and applause ] you know, tonight it's clearer than ever that this may be one of the most consequential campaigns of our lifetimes. the next president will walk into the oval office next january, sit down at that desk and start making decisions that will affect the lives and the livelihoods of vieveryone in th country, indeed, everyone on this planet. now, i know, i know that easy decisions don't make it to the president's desk. only the hardest choices and the thorniest problems. i saw president obama wrestle with the decision to send navy s.e.a.l.s after osama bin laden. the decision to rescue the auto
industry. to fight for the affordable care act and so many more. and so our next president has to be ready to face three big tests. first, can you make positive differences in people's lives? second, can you keep us safe? third, can you bring our country together again? [ cheers and applause ] now, making differences, making differences in people's lives comes first because americans everywhere are hungry for solutions. they want to break down the barriers holding them back so we can all rise together. ask any parent. you'll hear, nothing is more
important than making sure their kids have a good school and a good teacher no matter what zip code they live in. they deserve a president who understands when we invest in our children's education, we're investing in all of our futures. and young people across america struggling under the weight of student debt find it difficult to imagine the futures they want and they deserve a president who will help relieve them of that burden and help future generations go to college without borrowing a dime for tuition. and, you know, grandparents who worry about retirement deserves a president who will protect and then expect social security for those who need it most.
not cut or privatize it. families deserve a president who will fight for the things that are priorities at home but too often aren't priorities in washington. affordable childcare. paid family leave. and something we have waited for long enough, equal pay for equal work for women. [ cheers and applause ] and above all, above all, hardworking americans across our country deserve a president with both the ideas and the n know how to create good jobs with rises incomes right here in our country and i am absolutely convinced that we have the tools to do that. that's why i've laid out a
program to do what can be done. more good jobs in infrastructure. more good jobs in manufacturing. more good jobs in small businesses. more good jobs in clean, renewable energy. good-paying jobs are the ticket to the middle class and we're going to stand up for the american middle class again. we're going to stand up for american workers and make sure no one takes advantage of us. not china, not wall street, and not overpaid corporate executives. now, look, look, of course every candidate, every candidate makes promises like this, but every
candidate owes it to you to be clear and direct. about what our plans will cost and how we're going to make them work. that's the difference between running for president and being president. [ cheers and applause ] and i'll tell you -- >> hillary! hillary! hillary! >> let me tell you that the second big test for our next president is keeping us safe. we live in a complex and, yes, a dangerous world. protecting america's national security can never be an afterthought. our commander in chief has to be able to defend our country, not embarrass it.
engage our allies, not alienate them. defeat our adversaries, not embolden them. when we hear a candidate for president call for rounding up 12 million immigrants, banning all muslims from entering the united states -- [ booing ] when he embraces torture, that doesn't make him strong. it makes him wrong. [ cheers and applause ] and, yes, our next president has to bring our country together so we can all share in the promise of america. we should be breaking down barriers, not building walls. we're not going to succeed by dividing this country between us and them. you know, to be great, we can't
be small. we can't lose what made america great in the first place, and this isn't just about donald trump. all of us have to do our part. we can't just talk about economic inequality, we have to take on all forms of inequality and discrimination. together, we have to defend all of our rights. civil rights and voting rights. workers' rights and women's rights. lgbt rights and rights for people with disabilities. and that starts by standing with president obama when he nominates a justice to the supreme court. our next president will face all these challenges and more. you know, running for president is hard, but being president is
harder. it is the hardest, most important job in the world and no one person can succeed at a job without seeking and finding common ground to solve the problems we face. if we work together, we can make a real difference in people's lives. if we reach out to treat each other with respect, kindness, and even love, instead of bluster and bigotry, if we lift each other up instead of tearing each other down, there's nothing we can't accomplish together. so please join me in this campaign. every vote counts. every volunteer hour counts. every contribution counts. eight years ago, eight years ago on the night of the ohio primary, i said i was running for everyone who's ever been counted out but refused to be knocked out. for everyone who has stumbled
but stood right back up. for everyone who works hard and never gives up. well, that is still true. our campaign is for the steelworker i met in ohio on sunday night who's laid off but hoping to get back to work. it's for the mother i met in miami whose five children haven't seen their father since he was deported. she dreams of a day when deportations end and families are reunited on a path to citizenship in america. [ cheers and applause ] and it is for the mothers i stood with in chicago yesterday who have lost children to gun violence. they're turning their sorrow into a strategy and their mourning into a movement. let's stand with people who have courage, who have resilience. let's stand with everyone who
believes america's best days are ahead of us. for all of our challenges, i've never had more faith in our future, and if we work together, if we go forward in this campaign, if we win in november, i know our future will be brighter tomorrow than yesterday. thank you, all, so very much. >> hillary clinton celebrating her victories tonight. we're yet to hear from donald trump. we're expecting that very shortly and also bernie sanders. obviously, very good news for hillary clinton, gloria and david. >> yeah, i think it's when you finally add up all the math this evening, i think this is going to be an almost insurmountable lead that hillary clinton really has over bernie sanders. >> i think ohio, in particular, was really good news for her. after michigan, the question was how will she do in ohio? >> right. >> she's going to do -- she obviously won ohio.
i think she's going to do very well there. >> the majority of the voters there are white, concerned about what happened in michigan -- >> right. it should pointed out bernie sanders, everybody said what does this money do for him? he outspent hillary clinton by more than a little in the last couple weeks includes in ohio where he outspent her 60-40 on television. so he invested tremendous resources in these races and she comes out on top in the three that have been decided so far. big night for her. >> even in north carolina he outspent her 3-1 in the last couple weeks. >> i think it's the combination, right, i mean, florida, general election state, did really well across the board with african-american voters, latino voters. north carolina, and then ohio. a lot of sanders voters were coming in this evening saying, listen, hillary clinton can only win in the south, what good do those states do in a general election? she comes in and wins ohio. did very well with white women. 59% to 40%. did well with african-american voters as well.
this is a real win for her, a psychological win and psychological blow in some ways to -- >> delegate win as well. >> big picture as we said at the outset of the evening, it's a defining night thus far and would seem headed more toward a general election between secretary clinton and donald trump. the one caveat, though, this is something that's getting attention in the blogsphere, puts forth that john kasich winning ohio is actually good news for donald trump. the thought process is that crowded field is one where trump excels and the longer it's delayed, that there's the one-on-one contest between cruz and trump, the better it is for donald trump. so file that away. >> i actually think -- happens to be an alias ted cruz is using. >> the smerconish principle that these two guys, ted cruz and john kasich, are saying now, huh-uh, i'm the one who should be here fighting. >> that battle.
>> right. right. this battle is going to go on. >> john kasich is also going to be coming out to speak. we heard to him. wolf talked to him a short time ago. >> massive backbreaking blow to the rebellion in the democratic party. there's no way around it. >> really? >> because where else is bernie sanders going to be able to find a basket of votes big enough to beat hillary clinton? she blew him out in florida. he expected that. ohio people thought maybe that's the second domino, you get a second michigan miracle and begin to make a case and become would become to come hhis way. college afford blt, the whole deal. she's trying to consolidate this party. he now goes -- the math says he goes from being a serious threat to being a serious message candidate. someone who's going to stay in this race, who's going to be very, very important. it becomes very difficult now to figure out how he becomes the
nominee. >> i think the word, message, was central to it. bernie has a very powerful message. a lot of people who vote for him want to send a message rather than pick a president. it may be, this is a theory, i don't have data, it may be the violence and talk of violence at trump rallies said something to democrats like, whoa, we theneeo pick a president, not just send a message. democrats think hillary is a stronger general election candidate. they haven't been voting that way everywhere, especially younger people. i wonder if the level of seriousness in the campaign on democratic side just -- >> it would be interesting to see if electability got higher than shares my values. john kasich i believe is coming out. let's listen in. oh, just about to come out. i'm sorry. the wrong word on that. as we wait for john kasich, well, here he is. >> governor john kasich!
now, you know, when you went to college in the 1970s, you appreciated good, peaceful protests every once in a while. we do. first of all, you know, when you're in the arena and you are struggling and you leave your family to go out and the campaign trail and deliver a message to america because you believe that you -- you believe that you are the best qualified person to be president of the united states and you put it all on the line and your family puts it all on the line and i want this crowd here tonight to give a great -- a great response to a
very, very great, talented and fine united states senator, marco rubio, for the effort that he has done. [ applause ] tonight, tonight we arrived in cleveland and we went to a restaurant. we thought we could kind of sneak in and grab a quick meal and when we walked through the restaurant, people started to cheer. my reaction, please don't to that because you're going to make me cry. but to have people believe in
you and to believe that you can bring people together and strengthen our country, i have to thank the people of the great state of ohio. i love you is all i can tell you. i love you. [ applause ] >> kasich! kasich! kasich! >> you know, when i became governor of ohio, i went to new york and i met with some of the rating agencies. things were bad. we'd lost 350,000 jobs. we were $8 billion in the hole and our credit was hanging in the balance and they told me, we're about to cut up your credit card and give you a new one where you can't buy as much. i said, you don't understand ohio, you don't understand ohioans. so i can't wait to go back
again. we're now up 400,000-plus jobs. we're running a $2 billion surplus. our pensions are secure. we've cut taxes by more than any governor in this country. and we are leaving no one behind. not the mentally ill, the drug addicted, the working poor. [ applause ] and i don't know whether you can actually serve a meal of words, but i would like to go back to those credit rating agencies where they can learn to eat their words about doubting ohio, huh? and you know, ladies and gentlemen, you know, look, my whole life has been about trying to create a climate of opportunity for people. you know, as my father carried
that mail on his back and his father was a coal miner, i was told by my cousin, i didn't realize this, my mother, one of four, was the only one to graduate from high school. the other three barely made it out of the eighth grade because they were poor. and, you know, as i've traveled the country and i look into your eyes, you want to believe, you want to believe again that we can have job security. you want to believe again that wages can rise. you want to believe that your children are going to have ultimately a better america than what we got from our mothers and fathers. that's the great american legacy that our kids will be better than we are. [ applause ] and i want -- i want people in ohio to know, as i think you do, i want people around the country
to know that i understand these tough issues. i grew up in these situations in that little blue collar town in mckees rocks and in my mind's eye is the need to forget the politics, forget the pollsters, forget all the focus groups because, you see, i represent you and it is my job to look at these situations and these problems and to listen to you and that it's my job to go and fix them and if that means at times i have to take some heat, well then that's just the price of leadership in america. okay? [ applause ] now, i want you to know the campaign goes on, and i also want you to know that it's been my intention to make you proud. it's been my intention to have
young people all across this country watch somebody enter into politics, even though i labored in obscurity for so long, people counting me out. people in ohio saying, why don't they ever call on him? okay? we get all that. but we put one foot in front of the other and i want to remind you, again tonight, that i will not take the low road to the highest office in the land. [ cheers and applause ] thank you. you know, the challenges that we have, we can go to washington in the first 100 days fix these
problems with a shock-and-awe agenda that can pass. i think we can rally the people in washington because i'm going to remind them that before we're republicans and democrats, we're americans and we have an obligation to our children. [ applause ] but i really, really, really believe this and want you to know this, maybe in many respects, this is why i've been given a chance to stand here tonight and have earned a victory. you know, the lord's made everybody here special. i've been telling people this all across the country. nobody, sir, has ever been made like you before, and no one will ever be like you again. and young lady, you're here in a moment in time and your job is to find that purpose that you have.
your job is to live life a little bit bigger than yourself. your job is to be a center of healing and justice and hope in whatever way we can. if we're a schoolteacher, we give up money to change lives. if we're a nurse, we work 15 extra minutes when we're dead on our feet because we want to assure a family that things are going to be okay. and if we -- [ applause ] and if we are a neighbor, that means that widow who was married for 50 years who no one calls anymore, you want to change the world? you take her to dinner on saturday night. she'll wear that dress she hadn't worn in six months. i trust you to do it. you see, what i learned as a boy, what i learned from my
mother and father, is that the spirit of america rests in us. it doesn't rest in a big-time politician, the big wigs. look, you hire us to do the job, plain and simple, to create an environment of economic growth and opportunity. but that's not where our spirit is. our spirit is in us. believing that through our efforts in whichever part of the world that we live, that we can change the world, that we can carve out a better future. that we can realize that those special gifts that were given to each and every one of us in here are something that we can use to heal the world. and you know, we're all part of a giant mosaic. a snapshot in time. all of us here. and it is our job as americans, our job as people who want to be decent and live good lives, dig down and understand that purpose
and never underestimate our ability to change the world in which we live. [ applause ] well guess what, tomorrow i'm going to philadelphia. [ applause ] and then i'm going, i don't know, all over the country, okay? and many of you have traveled around this country trying to help me. you know what, look, this is all i got, okay? this is all i got. and all i can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart, but i want you to know something, we're going to go all the way to cleveland and secure the republican nomination.
[ cheers and applause ] >> kasich! kasich! kasich! you know, i also want to thank -- you know, my father was a democrat all his life. he was. we had a lot of democrats that said they didn't like a socialist agenda or a left-wing agenda or big government. i want to thank them for coming over in this election and putting their confidence in me because, you know, i think we all know that conservative principles can work. that common sense can work. that shifting power and money and influence from that big place in washington and moving it to where we live that
empowers us, that's the direction for our country. that is the direction for our country. and finally, and finally, i want you coming out on the road. i want you continuing to do what we've been doing all over this country. i'm getting ready to rent a covered wagon. we're going to have a big sail and have the wind blow us to the rocky mountains and over the mountains to california. but here's what i want you to know -- [ applause ] we've got one more trip around ohio this coming fall where we will beat hillary clinton and i will become the president of the united states. thank you, all, very much. and god bless you. >> governor john kasich of ohio able to give the first victory speech so far in this race.
obviously a very big win for him. paul begala, is the path forward -- i mean, is there much of a path forward for him? >> certainly better than losing. it is 44% in his own state where just a year and a half ago he got 64%. but still, it's a big win because somebody had to try to at least interrupt trump's progress and the speech here was really telling. from the opening line, he was the anti-trump. he knows what he wants to be. he said, "i want to pull america together, not pull america apart." gee, who could he be referring to? he was interrupted by a protester. this is like an asset test. nobody was better than ronald reagan thinking on his feet, protesters when they interrupted him. this guy was great. he said, i went to college in the '70s, i like a good peaceful protest, he didn't say beat him up. >> the other thing he did, s.e. cupp is clearly reach out to marco rubio and marco rubio voters saying people should give a big hand to marco rubio. >> yeah, they were most closely aligned for the optimism candidate, so i think he felt a
real kin sthip with marco rubio and probably wants marco rubio's voters. he knows they're not going to go for trump and probably not going to go for cruz. i think what will be interesting for john kasich now that he's made it to the show is what's going to happen in the days and weeks ahead? he will face scrutiny like he's never had before. that will include donald trump mocking him as the absentee governor. sometimes trump intentionally mispronounces his last name kasich to try to get under his skin. i think you're going to have ted cruz coming after him for his accepting medicaid expansion for obamacare in ohio. and i think you're going to have a slew of, you know, former staffers of john kasich who knew him on the hill talking about how he wasn't that nice of a guy while he was on the hill. you're already seeing those stories come out. >> jeffrey lord, this was really the first time donald trump went after john kasich. he basically ignored him up until now. went after him on nafta in particular, being absentee governor. >> right. he's not going to be ignored
anymore. i noticed ted cruz has just sent out a press release and the headline is "big news, it's now a two-man race." >> he's got some problems, though, in pennsylvania. >> he does. i want to say, the reason why he reached out for marco rubio, perhaps, is that to run for president and get on the pennsylvania ballot, you need to file 2,000 signatures. he filed 2,184. the rubio campaign has challenged those. there's an almost concession on the part of kasich's campaign that they may not be on all fours. now the question becomes will rubio withdraw that legal challenge so kasich can stay on the pennsylvania ballot? notice he said he's coming to philadelphia in the morning. >> i think you got to give him his due. he's waited five weeks to give a victory speech and made the most of it tonight. when you listen to the speech, yes, he signaled he was the a t anti-trump. gloria said, i think she was
right while we were watching the speech, it sounded like a governor's speech. sounded like he'd just won re-election of governor. >> right. >> he has to prove he can win beyond his home state. >> let's go back to wolf. >> anderson, thanks. let's check in. here's a key race alert for our viewers. the outstanding races, let's start in the republican contest in missouri right now. 16% of the vote is in. look how close it is. donald trump 42.2%. ted cruz 39.8%. kasich with 8.4%. 3,000 votes. that's what donald trump has an advantage. 16% of the vote is now in in missouri. let's continue with the republican contest. in north carolina, it's close, donald trump has the lead. almost half of the vote is in. 40.3% to cruz 36.3%. kasich's at 12.4%. donald trump with half the vote in has a nice lead there but it's still close. in illinois right now, a quarter of the vote is in. trump is ahead of cruz. 39% to 25.4%. kasich right now 22.7%. a quarter of the vote is in
almost 50,000 vote advantage for donald trump in illinois right now. 69 delegates at stake in illinois. those are pretty close race. let's take a look at the democratic side. look at how close it is right now between bernie sanders and hillary clinton. 9% of the vote is in. 49.9% for bernie sanders. 48.2% for hillary clinton. he's ahead by 1,000 votes or so. it's very close in missouri. 9% of the vote is in in missouri. we're watching that race very closely. all of these contests outstanding contests, we are not yet ready to make projections. illinois, take a look at this. more than half of the vote is in. hillary clinton has a lead, 52.6% over bernie sanders' 46.5%. she's up by 52,000 votes right now. let's take a look at the states won right now. we'll start with the republicans first. in florida, we have projected donald trump is the winner in florida. all 99 delegates, winner take all in florida. donald trump is the winner. also on the republican side, john kasich, all 666 delega 6
john kasich, all 666 delega6 deo to john kasich, an important win for him. democratic side, hillary clinton of the five contests she has won, we projected florida, north carolina and ohio. we're still waiting for illinois and missouri. we're waiting, by the way to hear from donald trump. he's going to be speaking shortly. let's take a quick break. much more right after this. pet moments are beautiful, unless you have allergies. then your eyes may see it differently. only flonase is approved to
relieve both your itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. complete allergy relief or incomplete. let your eyes decide. flonase changes everything. [so i use quickbooks and run mye entire business from the cloud. i keep an eye on sales and expenses from anywhere. even down here in the dark i can still see we're having a great month. and celebrate accordingly. i run on quickbooks.that's how i own it.
we need to be ready for my name's scott strenfel and r i'm a meteorologist at pg&e. we make sure that our crews as well as our customers are prepared to how weather may impact their energy. so every single day we're monitoring the weather, and when storm events arise our forecast get crews out ahead of the storm to minimize any outages. during storm season we want our customers to be ready and stay safe. learn how you can be prepared at pge.com/beprepared. together, we're building a better california.
we're told donald trump is getting ready to speak. it's sort of a speech/news conference at mar-a-lago his club at palm beach. once he starts speaking, we'll have live coverage of that. so far he's won his home state, second home state, i should say, of florida right now. lives in new york but has a lot of homes in florida right now. let's go to jake right now. >> thanks, wolf. of course, we're talks about which states the candidates have won but also more to the point we're talking about how many delegates they've won. let's go to cnn's executive editor mark preston to give us the rundown on the numerical
count. >> it does come down to the mathematics of it all. need 1,237 to win the nomination. let's look at these tonight. gop delegates won tonight so far donald trump has won 108. as you can see, john kasich with the big win in ohio picked up 66. up to date up to the time we are right now, let's take a look how many delegates we are in this race. donald trump 571. ted cruz 371. marco rubio who has suspended his campaign tonight, 165. and john kasich with that big win in ohio tonight, 129. let's take a look at the democrats tonight. hillary clinton with some big wins. she has gotten 120 delegates tonight to bernie sanders' 56 delegates. let's look at the delegate race to date right now. look at that number right now. hillary clinton, 1,364 delegates. bernie sanders with 630. however, let me break this down a little bit. look at those numbers right there.
hillary clinton has 892 pledged delegates. bernie sanders has 607. if you look at the number below, 472 superdelegates have pledged to support hillary clinton while 23 have pledged to support bernie sanders. now, i have to tell you, jake, as we all know, those 472 folks don't have to support hillary clinton. they could switch their mind and they could go to bernie sanders if for some reason he caught fire and they decided they wanted to support him. sanders campaign, jake, will tell us over and over again that we shouldn't be looking at that number so closely, we should only be looking at the ones that are bound pledged delegates but the fact of the matter is right now hillary clinton is having a good night and does have those superdelegates as of this evening. >> that's right, thanks, mark. dana, in 2008, we saw a lot of the superdelegates that lined up behind secretary clinton and senator clinton change after obama got more momentum and more victories under his belt. so it is probably more accurate since superdelegates are fickle to go with the pledged delegates which is roughly 900 for clinton
and 600 for sanders. >> which is a significant lead. there's no question. we've been focused a lot on the tamult on the republican side but hillary clinton has had a good night. going into tonight, her -- maybe it was masterful spending, but her campaign was saying well, we're not so sure about ohio. she won ohio. they were more sure about florida. she won florida. of course it's proportional and it is a delegate race but she's doing better tonight than even her campaign, i think, even the most candid moments expected. >> ohio democrats were legitimately, concerned is not the word since a lot for rooting for clinton and others were more neutral. ohio democrats said it was definitely more of a dog fight than it ended up being in ohio. that's a big victory for clinton. like you said, we anticipated she was going to win north carolina and florida but ohio is strong for her. also i guess we'll see what the final numbers are in the republican races but right now looks like some real fights
going on in some of those states. >> that's right. missouri and illinois, those are fascinating states for a number of reasons, but the most important, i think, is what's happened in the last i would say week or two. the anti-trump superpac movement, especially, they moved some new money that they got in to those states hoping that they would be able to slow donald trump. you know, it's always unclear whether or not we can really track a certain, you know, tactical move or certain ads, but, you know, if it is true that cruz wins one of them or at least if trump and cruz are pretty close, perhaps those ads had a difference. >> and of course, the biggest story of the night, of course, john kasich in ohio on the republican side. wolf, back to you. >> all right. we're waiting for donald trump to speak. he's at his club at mar-a-lago in palm beach. i want to walk to john king at the magic wall. as we await donald trump, he's going to do a little statement, make a speech. he has supporters there, also
got the news media there. he'll answer reporters' questions. a new style on election nights. >> he has friends in the room. see if we have trump steaks or trump wine. we'll see how it goes. we haven't called missouri, illinois or the republicans. donald trump wants to end the night saying okay, governor kasich, you won at home but i'm massing a delegate lead state by state by state victory lead. we have close ones. here's how it looks right now. let's see if it's going to hold that way. let's go to north carolina. 53%. four-point lead. shy of that for donald trump. look at this, it's a close race. this is not winner take all. so no matter how it ends up, first the statewide winner gets a bunch then we look at the congressional districts to see how they spread out. if it's like south carolina, trump has a decent margin, he'll get delegates. can ted cruz come back is your question at the moment? look in lake county and raleigh, ted cruz is winning but the vote is almost all counted. durham county, only half of the vote counted, ted cruz with a pretty healthy lead if that stays. there's no guarantee it will. if that stays, there's votes on the board still for ted cruz.
however, donald trump is winning by a healthy margin in the largest county in the state, mecklenburg, the charlotte area. in that trend continues we still have 70% of the vote. advantage trump. still votes to count. the way it's filling in so far, slight advantage for trump. we'll see how that plays out. again, the closeness parties because we may have to look through congressional districts. let's move over to illinois on the republican side. not so close here. only 30% of the vote. why we're being cautious here. you want to count more of the vote. the map filling in as donald trump would like it. in the chicago area in the suburb, donald trump is winning. down here, springfield, we don't have any votes yet from the center part of the state here but? the smaller rural areas around it, it is filling in. wolf, back to you. i understand we have a projection. >> another major projection we're about to make right now. listen to this. cnn projects donald trump is the winner of the illinois republican presidential primary. this is his second win of the night. earlier, we projected he's the
winner in florida. all 99 delegates winner take all in florida. not necessarily the case in illinois where it's proportional but it is a big, big win for donald trump in illinois. they're cheering presumably over there. i want to go to jim acosta over at trump headquarters in palm beach at mar-a-lago. he wanted to win illinois and we projected he is now the winner. >> reporter: absolutely, wolf. they're watching cnn here at the trump headquarters at mar-a-lago in west palm beach. they're very excited in here obviously. i think we're going to be hearing from donald trump shortly. i think from talking to some folks here that donald trump wanted to do was wait for some more of these election results to come in. didn't want to just come in after florida and then kasich winning ohio. now that illinois has come in, potentially the other states coming in, quite possibly for donald trump that we may be hearing from him shortly. interesting to see that illinois is going donald trump's way
after all of that trouble that we saw unfold in chicago the other night. obviously that was not a big enough issue for republicans in that state, wolf. >> all right. we're going to stand by. we're going to hear donald trump momentarily, we're told. he's going to walk over there to the mar-a-lago club where you are in palm beach. we'll take a quick break. our coverage continues right after this. pet moments are beautiful, unless you have allergies. then your eyes may see it differently. only flonase is approved to relieve both your itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. complete allergy relief or incomplete. let your eyes decide. flonase changes everything.
some people have to travel for work. hi there, looks like you've had a long day. pull up a crate! some people get to travel for work. i'm really looking forward to this spinach salad. it's got quinoa in it! sometimes it's the little things that make a big difference. it's wireless. do you like reggae?
one again, we're waiting to hear from donald trump. you're looking at live pictures coming in from his club at palm beach. once he starts speaking, we'll have live coverage. we've predicted he's the winner in florida and illinois. in m right now, one of two states still outstanding, donald trump is ahead with a quarter of the vote, in 43%, trump is ahead but 5,500 votes or so. in north carolina 56% of the vote is in, donald trump is ahead of tred cruz. he's up about 28,000 votes so far in north carolina. those are the two outstanding
races on the republican side. let's take a look at the democratic side right now and give you a key race alert. in missouri right now, 12% of the vote is in. look how tight it is between bernie sanders and hillary clinton in missouri. 49.8% for bernie sanders. there is just changed, 50.1% for bernie sanders, ahead by 1,356 votes. 14% of the vote is in. in illinois, 62% of the vote is in. 52.5% for hillary clinton, 46.7% for bernie sanders. she's got a nice lead of about 58,000 votes right now, 62% of the vote in illinois have been counted so far. let's take a look at the states won so far on this night. donald trump, we have projected is the winner in new hampshire and illinois. john kasich we projected is the winner in ohio. on the democratic side, so far three wins for hillary clinton,
florida, north carolina and ohio. we're still waiting for illinois and missouri. important wins for hillary clinton right now. let's go over to john king, the magic call. we still have, what, one, two, three, four contests outstanding. some of them pretty close. >> pick them, let's go through it. missouri republicans, 29% of the vote in. pretty close rate there. it's a 4-point race. it's filling in the way donald trump would like it. if you're ted cruz, you need to did better up here and down here. bible belt area down here, springfield, birth place of the right to life movement, you have the traditional suburbs in st. louis. a very close race here between three candidates. you have the two mainstream republicans, mccain and romney won across the center of the state and mike huckabee winning evangelical voters in the south be, critical for ted cruz to improve his standing. 2016, you see donald trump
filling in some states key to huckabee so watch that. quick look at illinois as we go across the republican race. we call that one, democratic state. let's see house of representatives we'-- how we're doing in north carolina. the map is filling in right now the way donald trump would very much like to, wolf. >> we have a major projection to make involving north carolina right now. watch this. cnn projects donald trump is the winner of the republican primary in north carolina. this is his third win of the night, a big win for donald trump in north carolina. earlier we projected he's the winner in florida as well as illinois. now he wins north carolina. this is a big win for him. john kasich has won in his home state of ohio. those are the three states that trump has won. ohio, that goes to john kasich, the governor there. but this is a big, big win.
take a look at the maps right now. i want to show our views the map. we'll see how that is unfolding. states won by hillary, by kasich, you saw that. in the south on the republican side, dark red. dark red is donald trump. he has carried not only florida but all of the deep south, south carolina, north carolina won today. we projected he's the winner in illinois as well. a lot of states, the sort of lighter pink if you will, that's ted cruz. he won his home state of texas and oklahoma he won, you see some of those states, nubio we know has dropped out, that one one purple blotch over there is kasich. hillary clinton has a complete sweep of all of the south. bernie sanders has the light blue, he's won several states. he has yet to win a state tonight but still two contests outstanding in illinois and missouri. we're watching all of that very closely. anderson, back to you.
>> and we're waiting to hear from donald trump himself. we'll bring those comments to you live. with you, david and gloria, a very big night for donald trump. no denying. >> i should point out as of now trump is the only one who would be nominated on the first ballot at contested republican convention because he's the only one who has won a majority of eight states. >> marco rubio also said the person who wins florida is going to win the nomination. >> i think what we're looking at right now is an establishment republican party that is trying to figure out the best way to beat this man right on our screen, whether it's rallying behind someone like a ted cruz or whether it's keeping cruz and kasich in the field to go the distance to the convention.
it seems to me some of them want to rally behind ted cruz because they think he can beat donald trump. >> talking to mostly supporters tonight. i think there's about two rows of reporters in the back of the room. let's listen in. >> thank you very much, everybody. this was an amazing evening. it was a great evening. they just announced north carolina. i don't know if they've announced illinois yet but we're leading by a lot. i think they're going o announce it. florida was so amazing. i want to thank our friends. northern mariannis islands has been so incredible. we heard early in the morning, nine delegates is a lot. i want to thank the governor, who is a great guy and the
chairman, atta, who is a very nice man. c cnn is very nice, they said 49% to 14 and 15. the economist just came out, 53%. i was watching the news a little while ago and one of the commentators, who i'm not particularly fond of but these are minor details says "but donald trump doesn't get over 50%," because i'm at 43, 45. according to the economist i'm at 53. and i have to explain to these people they don't understand basic physics, basedic ma basic, whatever you want to call it. we have four people, do you have understand it? so when i get 53 in this one, as an example, i had 53 and that's with four people. that's an amazing achievement
just mathematically when you can get over 50. so someday they're going to understand, someday when we're take it all, they'll understand. with you it is really ridiculous. i want to thank my family, my boy eric and don, they've been work being so hard ivanka and jared have been amazinamazing. in a moment i'll call her. in about two minutes she's ready to have a baby. it's been just great. i want to thank baron for putting up with the fact that i never see him anymore. i never see my baron and it's his birthday on sunday so we're very happy about that. it's a little tough, you're going away. he goes with "when are you going to come home, dadaddy"?
i said, well, in about two and a half weeks. yesterday we went up to youngstown, ohio, just amazing nominee this country. we will sometime, if i -- otherwise it's not going to happen, i have to be honest -- but apple and all of these great companies will be making their products in the united states, not in china, vietnam. and we're not going to be losing our companies pu. you know, our companies are leaving our country rapidly, whether it's carrier air conditioning, whether it's ford, eaton corp, they're leaving. frankly, i'm disgusted with it and i'm tired of seeing it and there's no reason for it. it's just gross incompetence at the highest level. we should not allow it to happen. pfizerea
