Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri jumped into the presidential nominating process, holding their first official GOP events on Tuesday.
The projected results are based off of the AP's vote count, the same data represented in the maps below. No network entrance or exit polls were conducted for these contests.
The results of Colorado and Minnesota's caucuses and Missouri's primary could influence public perceptions about the Republican candidates, but they will likely play little role in the actual selection of the GOP nominee. These states have traditionally done little to help predict a future presidential nominee. In addition, because these states moved up the dates of their contests by as much as a month, the results are non-binding. Colorado, for example, won't officially assign delegates to the Republican National Convention until April 14.
