Hillary Clinton has won the Arkansas Democratic primary.

Polls closed in Arkansas at 8:30, and the result certainly was not a surprise. Mrs. Clinton was expected to win in a landslide in the state where her husband, former President Bill Clinton, served as governor for 12 years.

Networks had called Virginia and Georgia for Mrs. Clinton shortly after the polls closed at 7 p.m., and did the same in Alabama and Tennessee after the polls closed at 8 p.m.

Tuesday’s elections, which together form so-called “Super Tuesday,” are crucial for both Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Sanders. Fresh off her dominating win in last Saturday’s South Carolina primary, Mrs. Clinton is poised to tap into her strong advantage among African-American voters and string together other big wins across the South.

In addition to Virginia, Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee, voters in Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas also vote Tuesday. Mrs. Clinton is leading in each of those states, polls have shown.

Mr. Sanders, meanwhile, is counting on strong showings in Vermont, Massachusetts, Colorado, Minnesota and Oklahoma to sustain his candidacy.
