Donald Trump is looking ever more in control of the race for the Republican presidential nomination after a resounding victory in the South Carolina primary, leaving Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz playing tug-of-war over who's the strongest anti-Trump candidate. In the Democratic race, Hillary Clinton blunted concerns about her viability with a clear victory over Bernie Sanders in Saturday's Nevada caucuses, the first state to test the Democrats' appeal among a racially diverse group of voters. Trump opted against his trademark braggadocio in assessing the state of the race Sunday.Already, Trump leads Republicans with 67 of the needed 1,237 delegates, with Cruz at 11 and Rubio at 10 . Clinton has 503 to Sanders' 70, including party officials known as superdelegates who can back the candidate of their choice regardless of the primary results in their states. Rubio and Cruz argued that with roughly 70 percent of Republican voters consistently voting for someone other than Trump, they have an opening as the Republican field keeps shrinking.Cruz countered that he's the only Republican who's been able to beat Trump so far, referring to his victory in leadoff Iowa.
