The Republican Party held primaries and caucuses in Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and Wyoming. The Republicans had 600 delegates up for grabs, almost half of the 1,237 total delegates available.
Super Tuesday was not a landslide for Trump by any means, but it did serve to further separate the two tiers of competition within the Republican primary. Trump won seven of the eleven states, which added a total of 256 delegates to his ranks. Ted Cruz (3) and Marco Rubio (1) also won states, with Cruz carrying his home state of Texas and adding 219 delegates. Rubio won only Minnesota but added a healthy 101 delegates. John Kasich and Ben Carson also won delegates, but did not win any states. Rubio's strong showing allowed him to stay in the race, but Cruz emerged as Trump's primary challenger.
