Trump, Clinton clinch victories in Arizona primaries

US presidential frontrunners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton notched easy victories in the Arizona primaries, inching closer to their respective party nominations for the November elections.

Trump, the leading Republican candidate, trounced his rivals in Arizona Tuesday night, winning all 58 of the state’s delegates.

Trump’s victory will make it harder for the two other remaining GOP contenders, Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich, to slow his growing momentum in the 2016 race.

The billionaire businessman proved his appeal among Republican hard-liners in the border state, where illegal immigration is a hot-button issue. Trump thanked Arizona voters in a Twitter post.
