Peter Bone’s letter to Obama inspired this phone call yesterday.
The bad news is that, alas, Peter won’t actually be flying down to Mar-A-Lago on Palm Beach for the weekend…
Donlad Trump and Hillary Clinton have emerged as the winners from what has been dubbed ‘Super Tuesday 2’.
Trump secured victories in 3 out of 4 states currently declared, including the all important winner-takes-all state of Florida. Although John Kasich did take Ohio, another winner-takes-all state. No gains for Rubio however, who has given up and announced he’s withdrawing from the race.
Meanwhile in the Democratic contest Hilary won has won 4 out of 4 states currently counted, leaving Bernie Sanders with nothing. So far the winners in the states that have declared are as follows:
Trump: Florida, Illinois, North Carolina
Clinton: Florida, Illinois, North Carolina, Ohio
Missouri is still undecided, with Trump and Clinton looking the likely winners there also. Live updates to follow.

Donlad Trump and Hillary Clinton have emerged as the winners from Super Tuesday. The Republican race has seen the Donald already win 7 out of 10 states currently declared. Hillary has also won 7 states in the Democratic contest, compared to Bernie Sanders’ 4.

How the Donald turns that around remains to be seen…
Like Chris says, Trump is tearing up the playbook. Can Trump stop Hilary?
