(AP) — Donald Trump is more than three-quarters of the way toward clinching the Republican nomination for president.

With 950 delegates, Trump has 77 percent of the delegates needed to win the nomination. He needs to win slightly more than half of the remaining delegates to get there.

Trump had a big night on Tuesday, collecting at least 105 of the 118 delegates at stake in five states.

John Kasich will win at least five delegates and Ted Cruz will win at least one.

Seven delegates are left to be awarded.
