Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has won the Republican presidential primary in Idaho, adding a seventh state win to his tally in the 2016 White House race.

He finished ahead of GOP front-runner Donald Trump, who earlier Tuesday won the day’s two biggest prizes — the primary elections in Mississippi and Michigan.

Still to come are the results from the GOP’s caucuses in Hawaii. They’ll wrap up at 1 a.m. Eastern time, with results to follow a few hours later.
