Primary Update

As of 10:30 p.m. Pacific Time we know the outcome of three of the GOP races, while we await results from Hawaii which is two hours later than Pacific Time.

Donald Trump won Michigan and Mississippi, with Ted Cruz coming in second in each. Ted Cruz won Idaho with Trump in second. Kasich posted a credible third in Michigan, and was pathetic in MS and ID. Rubio was pathetic in all three, he hasn't won a delegate all night.

We may not see HI called before morning, nobody much cares since it reliably votes Democrat in general elections. With 22% of the caucus votes tallied, Trump leads handily and will likely win that state's caucus vote.

On the Democrat side, Sanders narrowly won Michigan while Clinton won Mississippi by like 5 to 1.

Later ... with 53% of the caucus votes counted, Hawaii is called for Trump with about 45% of the vote.
