(NewsNation) — Decision Desk HQ projects Democratic incumbent President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump the winners of their respective primaries in Texas.

Voters in Texas were among those in more than a dozen other states who headed to the polls on Super Tuesday to weigh in on their preferred pick for the Republican and Democratic presidential nominations in the 2024 general election.

Republican voters will choose between front-runner Trump and his challenger, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Trump entered Tuesday boosted by a major last-minute win from the U.S. Supreme Court decision Monday that said Colorado — and by extension, other states — could not exclude him from the ballot.

Meanwhile, Biden doesn’t face a formidable opponent, but his support took a hit in Michigan from frustrated voters who did not agree with his handling of the Israel-Hamas conflict. Advocates in other states are also pushing for voters to choose “uncommitted” as their selection on the ballot Tuesday.

Polls in Texas close at 9 p.m. ET. You can track results of Tuesday’s primary election in the trackers below as results come in:

Heading into Tuesday, the former president had more than 270 delegates while Haley had 43. On Tuesday, 865 GOP delegates and 1,420 Democratic delegates will be up for grabs, and you can track each candidate’s numbers in our tracker here. To clinch the nomination, Trump will need 1,215 delegates of the 2,429 available, so he will not win outright Tuesday, though success on the night will mean he’s much closer to the goal.
