WASHINGTON (NEWSnet/AP) — President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump clinched their parties’ presidential nominations Tuesday with decisive victories in a slate of primaries.

Both candidates dominated Tuesday’s primaries in swing-state Georgia, deep-red Mississippi and Democratic-leaning Washington. Voting was taking place later in Hawaii’s Republican caucus.

Neither Biden, a Democrat, nor Trump, a Republican, faced major opposition. But their wins gave each man the delegate majority he needed to claim his party’s nomination at the summertime national conventions.
