US election 2016: Donald Trump wins Washington primary


Washington, May 25: Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday bagged the Washington state primary, taking his tally to 1,209. It means he now needs just 28 of the required delegates to clinch the nomination. A Republican candidate has to have 1,237 delegates to get the nomination.

Trump won at least 40 of Washington's delegates while four more are yet to be decided, which means his tally will go even higher. [Bernie Sanders wants recounting of Kentucky result]

Trump became the GOP's presumptive nominee in April with a decisive victory that saw his remaining two rivals---Ted Cruz and John Kasich---quitting the race and concluding months of talks about the potential of a contested convention.
