Bernie Sanders pulled off a stunning upset, on a night when much else remained unchanged—with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both adding to their overall leads

The results from Tuesday's four primary and caucus states are in: three wins for Trump, one for each Clinton and Cruz, and one surprising, narrow victory for Sanders.

Bernie Sanders' tight win over Hillary Clinton in Michigan is the biggest news out of Tuesday night's presidential nomination races. Though Clinton had led consistently in recent polls, Sanders won by less than two percentage points, with 99 percent of precincts reporting.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton won easily in Mississippi earlier in the evening. On the Republican side, Donald Trump won in Hawaii, Michigan, and Mississippi, and Ted Cruz won Idaho.
