JACKSON, MISS– The polls have closed. News Mississippi is updating you on the numbers as they develop.
Donald Trump takes the Republican win, and Hillary Clinton takes the democratic win. Mississippi is a winner-take-all-state. If a candidate gets more than 50% of the vote for their party, they get all of the delegates for that party.
The Fox News exit polls show that those self-labeled as “Very conservative” were 45% for Ted Cruz, with Trump on his heels at 40%. But those who label as “evangelical Christians” were 42% sided with Trump, with Cruz just slightly behind at 40%.
On the congressional end, Gregg Harper moves on to the republican ballot for the district 3 congressional seat in D.C. over Jimmy Giles. First term U.S. rep Trent Kelly wins the Republican primary in Mississippi’s 1st district.
