After a close race, Hillary Clinton has claimed Massachusetts, a crucial win for the presidential candidate.

Hillary Clinton has swept up Massachusetts, as predicted, for a big win on Super Tuesday.

This is a big win for Clinton, and a big loss for Sanders. It was one of the few states the Vermont senator was polling closely behind Clinton.

Clinton was already ahead of Sanders early in the night being projected to win Tennessee, Alabama, Virginia, Georgia, Texas and Arkansas.
