Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and billionaire Donald Trump pulled ahead Tuesday after key primary wins in their respective parties in the U.S. presidential race, marking a significant turning point in the race for the White House.

Governor John Kasich won his home state of Ohio, while U.S. Senator Ted Cruz failed to make any significant gains.

On the Democratic side, front-runner Hillary Clinton enjoyed clear victories in four key states, increasing her lead over challenger Bernie Sanders.
