It’s been a wild day in politics all across the spectrum.
It starts with Hillary Clinton’s victory over Bernie Sanders in the Nevada Caucus.
While Clinton was the slight favorite to win the caucus, turnout was lower than it was in 2008, which shows the lack of enthusiasm on the Democrat side.
On the GOP side, early in the evening, South Carolina handed a victory to Donald Trump, with Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz in a close battle for second place.
But perhaps the biggest news of the night is Jeb Bush suspending his presidential campaign. Bush, the son of former President George H.W. Bush and brother of former President George W. Bush, was banking on a strong showing from South Carolina in hope of moving forward.
The announcement speaks wonders of this election cycle. Bush’s SuperPAC, Right to Rise, had committed to over $118 million dollars, which was mostly spent attacking other candidates. But with Trump sucking up all the oxygen in the room, there was never really no momentum for the former Florida governor.
