WASHINGTON — Donald Trump has won the Republican presidential caucuses in Hawaii, adding to his victories earlier Tuesday in Michigan and Mississippi.

Trump won three of the four Republican contests held on Tuesday. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz won the fourth, picking up a victory in the Idaho primary.

It was a tough night for John Kasich and Marco Rubio, who both sought momentum headed into primary elections in their home states next week.

Cruz edged out Kasich in Michigan, where the Ohio governor had spent much of the past week campaigning.

And Rubio posted two third-place and two fourth-place finishes on a disappointing night for the Florida senator.
