WASHINGTON, D.C. - Donald Trump (R) and Hillary Clinton (D) were the big winners of 'Super Tuesday'- a day consisting of presidential primaries in 11 different states.

Donald Trump won seven states, most among republicans, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia. He's also expected to win Alaska, where he was endorsed by former Gov. Sarah Palin (R).

Two other republicans won at least one state on Tuesday: Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio. Cruz won his home state of Texas and neighboring Oklahoma, while Rubio won Minnesota.

The two other republican candidates, Ben Carson and Ohio Gov. John Kasich are currently winless. Kasich did finish second in Vermont, garnering 30% of the vote. Carson didn't poll higher than 10% in any state (Alabama).

Among the democrats, Clinton has the best night winning seven states: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

Sen. Bernie Sanders won Colorado, Oklahoma, Minnesota and his home state of Vermont.

Voters in Louisiana head to the polls Saturday for the Presidential Primary. Two candidates will spend the evening prior in Louisiana: Trump rallies in New Orleans Friday, while Rubio does the same in downtown Baton Rouge.
