It isn’t Tuesday without a presidential primary, and Tuesday May 10th was no different.  It was finally time for Nebraska and West Virginia to go to the polls.

The race in West Virginia was called early on, with presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump as the clear winner of the race, though Cruz and Kasich were still on the ballot following their suspensions of their campaigns following the Indiana primary.

The race in West Virginia was also called early for Bernie Sanders, a win for him following a few setbacks against Hillary Clinton in recent primaries.  Clinton was widely criticized during her stops in West Virginia for her previous statements about ending the coal industry that is such a vital part of West Virginia’s economy.

In Nebraska, Trump took the race again.  Sanders also found another win in Nebraska,
