As polls close in the Indiana primary, Republican front-runner Donald Trump is projected to take the state, beating rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich.
After sweeping victories across Maryland, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Delaware last Tuesday, billionaire real estate mogul Trump adds to his delegate lead.
Trump will add at least 45 delegates to his lead.
In a sign of what's at stake in Indiana, the lead up to Tuesday's primary saw Trump levy bizarre allegations about rival Cruz, claiming that the Texas senator's father was with Lee Harvey Oswald moments before the assassin shot President John F. Kennedy.
The accusation was vehemently denied by Cruz, who facetiously suggested that he might also be Elvis Presley, and that Jimmy Hoffa was "buried in his backyard," before calling the billionaire a "pathological liar."
Multiple news sources have pointed out that Trump's accusation is in no way grounded in fact.
The next Republican primary will be held in Nebraska next Tuesday.
