Former President Donald Trump is racking up wins across the country as voters take to the polls across more than a dozen Super Tuesday states where hundreds of delegates are up for grabs, according to The Associated Press.

Trump beat former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley in VirginiaNorth CarolinaTennesseeOklahomaMaineAlabamaMassachusettsTexasArkansas and Colorado, the AP projected. Republican contests in Alaska, California, Minnesota, Utah and Vermont have yet to be called.

The primary in Vermont is neck and neck between Trump and Haley, with the former president currently leading by less than two points.

President Joe Biden also secured wins in the Democratic contests for VirginiaVermontIowaNorth CarolinaTennesseeOklahomaMassachusettsMaineArkansasAlabama, Texas and Colorado, according to the AP.

Haley lost to the “None of These Candidates” option in the Nevada primary, which did not count for delegates. The former ambassador notched her first win in the Washington, D.C., primary on Sunday.

Georgia, Hawaii, Mississippi and Washington will hold their respective nominating contests on March 12. Several other states follow on March 19, including Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Kansas and Ohio.

Trump’s campaign previously estimated in a memo that the former president would have enough delegates by March 12 at the earliest and March 19 at the latest to surpass the Republican National Committee’s 1,215 threshold.
