In Tarrant County, Sheriff Dee Anderson was in the fight of his career. He outlasted two challengers, but could not quite hit 50 percent. That means he’s headed for a runoff with Bill Waybourn, former police chief of Dalworthington Gardens.

Texas Republicans turned out in droves to vote in Tuesday’s presidential primary. The race featured a cast of diverse candidates, and backers of all of them gathered at a sports bar in Dallas to watch the numbers roll in.

The results of the biggest voting day in the presidential contest thus far may not have been everything that front-runners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton had hoped, but they were enough to set the course for the remainder of the nominating season.

And they were surely enough to intensify the pressure on their respective rivals.

Super Tuesday was a big night for both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. They each captured seven states in their respective Democratic and Republican races, extending leads over their remaining rivals.

On the Republican side, Trump has won seven states: Virginia, Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee, Vermont, Massachusetts and Georgia. Sen. Ted Cruz won his home state of Texas, eked out a surprise victory in Oklahoma and won the caucuses in Alaska. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio finally got his first outright win by taking the Minnesota caucuses.
