Missouri’s Secretary of State Jason Kander notified the public on Tuesday that he’s certified the presidential primary election results.

“This morning I certified the presidential preference primary. @HillaryClinton and @realDonaldTrump have officially won Missouri,” Kander posted on Twitter.

GOP frontrunner Donald Trump inched out Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) by .2 percent. Trump received 25 delegates, while Cruz received 15. Ohio Gov. John Kasich received zero delegates.

Hillary Clinton defeated Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) by .2 percent. Both Sanders and Clinton received 34 delegates. However, when super delegates are added, Clinton receives 46.

Mr. Trump continues to be the only Republican candidate with a clear path to receiving enough delegates to be the Republican Party Presidential nominee. Mr. Trump has millions more votes and is the definitive front-runner with more delegates than any other candidate. He is focused on the upcoming primary in his home state of New York. The most recent poll shows Mr. Trump leading with 60% in the Empire State, a 43-point advantage over his nearest rival.

Trump adds, “Thank you to the great people of Missouri who voted for me and the state officials who worked to ensure the votes of the people mattered. It is great to have yet another victory as we look forward to the upcoming primary in New York.”
