Last night was Super Tuesday, the biggest night of the presidential election process so far.
People in 12 states voted all at once, but not for president yet …
Republicans are narrowing their choice down to one candidate out of the five that are still left: Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, John Kasich, and Ben Carson.
Democrats are trying to decide between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
All 50 states go through this process until the Republicans come up with one person and so do the Democrats … and then those two will square off against each other this Fall to see who will become the next President of the United States. The presidential election is November 8.
Until Super Tuesday, only four states had gone: Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.
But last night about 20% of the states voted all at once. That’s a lot … and the most all at once in this phase of the election.
So how did it go?
Hillary Clinton was the big winner on the Democratic side. She won 7 out of the 12 states.
On the Republican side, Donald Trump was the winner, also winning 7 of the 12 states.
The 12 states in last night’s voting were: Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Colorado and Minnesota.
