Trump takes three states as rival Marco Rubio drops out

Donald Trump has scored victories in three states, including the big prize of Florida, but lost Ohio to state governor John Kasich as the billionaire’s rivals desperately tried to stop his march to the Republican presidential nomination.

Marco Rubio, the Florida senator who staked his once-promising campaign on winning in his home state, dropped out of the presidential race shortly after the polls closed, leaving Mr Kasich as the last true establishment candidate running against Mr Trump and arch-conservative Ted Cruz.

Hillary Clinton won at least four states, dealing a severe blow to the bid by Bernie Sanders to slow her march towards the Democratic nomination.
