Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump was projected to win the Washington Republican primary on Tuesday night, NBC News and The Associated Press reported.

There were 44 delegates up for grabs in the state that will be awarded proportionally based on votes. Trump needs only 76 more delegates to obtain the 1,237 necessary to secure the nomination. He is expected to more than meet that threshold with future contests including those in California and New Jersey.

On the Democratic side, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) won more delegates in Washington than opponent Hillary Clinton.
