WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump wins the Republican presidential primary in Florida, Ohio and North Carolina , widening his lead in the race for the GOP nomination.

Donald Trump is marking his latest string of victories by saying he is bringing new voters to the Republican party.

Trump said Tuesday during a victory rally at his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida that “something is happening” in the Republican Party that is being noticed “all over the world.”

He touted increased voter turnout and a rise in new voters who have come out to support him.

The celebrity businessman won Tuesday in North Carolina, Illinois and Florida. His rout in Florida, the home of Marco Rubio, effectively ended the senator’s White House bid.

John Kasich won his first contest of the primary process by taking his home state of Ohio on Tuesday. Ted Cruz has not yet won a state.
