Getting his MoJo Back: Trump wins Mississippi Primary

 Trump comes roaring back!
TPM reports Donald Trump is projected to win the Mississippi GOP primary Tuesday, fending off the challenge from Ted Cruz. His victory is a blow to the Stop Trump efforts that were hoping Cruz’s regional appeal would be enough to block Trump there.

Trump’s victory was called by the networks at about 8:30 p.m. EST, 30 minutes after the polls closed.
