Businessman Donald Trump and Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are firmly on a path for a general election showdown.

Sunday, February 21, 2016 – 10:30 a.m.

GOP Front-runner Donald Trump and Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton each scored election victories on Saturday.

Trump easily won the South Carolina Republican Primary, while Clinton squeaked out a victory in the Nevada Caucus.

Both candidates are well-positioned to win their parties respective nominations.

Trump captured a third of the vote in a six-candidate field. But more importantly, Trump carved up the evangelical christian support base of Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz.

On the democrat front. Clinton beat Vermont U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders by about four percent.

In a side development. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush made a combined concession and suspension speech.

Bush, who spent north of $100 million, was unable to gain traction since announcing his campaign. His emotional announcement reduces the GOP filed to five going forward.

Next on tap for republicans is the Nevada Caucus on Tuesday night, where Trump is expected to win easily.

Clinton will next face Sanders in South Carolina on Saturday, where she is also expected to win handily.

It’s looking more and more like a Trump-Clinton general election showdown.

That’s of course barring any legal email hassles for Clinton.
