(CNN) – Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton notched convincing victories in Arizona, picking up the biggest prize on Western Tuesday that moved the front-runners ever closer to a general election clash.

The Arizona wins handed enough delegates to Trump and Clinton to help them maintain their leads in the delegate count despite victories from their primary competitors.

Bernie Sanders won morale-boosting Democratic victories in Utah and Idaho while Ted Cruz came out on top in the Utah Republican caucuses.

But the big win for Cruz was meeting the 50% threshold in Utah, according to a CNN projection, that hands him all of the state’s 40 delegates. The Texas senator needed a win of that magnitude to avoid falling further behind Trump in the GOP delegate race.
