Donald Trump pulled off a win against his Republican rivals in Alabama on Tuesday.

The Republican race was called just after the polls closed at 8 p.m. EST.

In Alabama, Trump won 43.42 percent of the vote, followed by Ted Cruz’s 21.1 percent, Marco Rubio’s 18.67 percent, Ben Carson’s 10.22 percent and John Kasich’s 4.43 percent.

According to the Associated Press, after the Super Tuesday contests, Trump now has 316 delegates, Cruz has 226 delegates, Rubio has 106 delegates, Kasich has 25 delegates and Carson has eight delegates. It takes 1,237 delegates to win.

On Sunday, Alabama Sen. [crscore]Jeff Sessions[/crscore] threw his support behind Trump. That was viewed as a setback for Cruz, who has long counted on performing well in the southern states. Kasich, meanwhile, was endorsed by Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley.
