Voters In Five States Go To Polls

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are looking to sweep today’s primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. There are 172 delegates for Republicans and 462 delegates for Democrats at stake. A decisive win for Clinton might have Bernie Sanders changing his tone toward the Democratic front-runner.
