    What to watch on Super Tuesday

    Donald Trump can’t lock up the Republican nomination Tuesday — but he can counter his two opponents’ divide-and-conquer strategy and reassert his dominance in the race by running the table in five states.

If she’s able to handily defeat Bernie Sanders, she could leave the Vermont senator with no real path to the Democratic nomination. There are 172 Republican delegates at stake, and 384 up for grabs on the […]
