Hillary Clinton easily defeated Bernie Sanders in Maryland’s Democratic primary Tuesday night.

The former secretary of state led Sanders by 21 points when the polls opened, and her Tuesday victory guaranteed her 46 of Maryland’s 95 delegates.

Entering Tuesday’s primaries, Clinton held a 754 delegate lead over Sanders, thanks in large part to her 518 pledged superdelegates, but still needed 437 to claim the nomination.

Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island also held primaries on Tuesday.
