    Donald Trump has won the Massachusetts and Vermont Republican primaries, according to NBC News projections.

    Republican voters gave Trump the win over fellow Republican candidates Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, John Kasich and Ben Carson, who were hoping for strong second place finishes.

    For Republicans, Massachusetts has 42 delegates awarded on a proportional basis. That means multiple candidates will likely receive delegates. All GOP delegates are awarded based on the primary tally.

    Trump was projected as the Vermont Republican primary winner overnight.

    Heading into Super Tuesday, Trump was leading the pack with 82 delegates after winning New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. 

    Cruz won Iowa and was in second with 17 delegates. Rubio was in a close third with 16 delegates.

    The Republican candidates spent Monday making a final push for voters.

    Trump ended his campaigning in Georgia, where he was joined on stage by some big names in NASCAR.

    Kasich spent the day campaigning in New England, while Cruz focused his attention on Texas.

    Rubio's stops included Georgia and Oklahoma.

    In Massachusetts, Gov. Charlie Baker headed to the polls in Swampscott early Tuesday morning.

    Baker had endorsed former Republican candidate Chris Christie, who is no longer in the running and has not backed another candidate publicly. He didn't say who he voted for, but did say it wasn't Trump or Cruz.
