With roughly 80 percent of the vote counted in Nebraska, several media outlets have called the race for Sen. Bernie Sanders. Sanders is leading rival Hillary Clinton with 55 percent of the vote to Clinton's 45 percent. Major population center Lancaster County (home to capitol city Lincoln, and the University of Nebraska at Lincoln) has yet to announce official results, but it is expected to lean Sanders. The Vermont senator won Kansas' caucus earlier Saturday. Kimberly Alters

Donald Trump used his Super Saturday victory speech to suggest it's "probably time" for Marco Rubio to drop out of the Republican presidential race.

"You have to be able to win, and he has not been able to win," Trump told supporters in Florida. Several networks projected Trump as the winner of the Kentucky Republican caucus and Louisiana GOP primary, and he came in second behind Ted Cruz in the Maine and Kansas Republican caucuses. "He should do well in Maine," Trump remarked. "It's very close to Canada, let's face it." Trump said he would "love to take on Ted one-on-one, that would be so much fun," adding that Cruz won't be able to win in "New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or California."

Trump also said he's the only candidate able to defeat Hillary Clinton, and mocked her recent statement that she would make "America whole again," calling it "terrible. I think she means we're in a hole. We're in a deep hole, and we're trying to dig our way out." He later said that "any hate group is no good with Trump, I totally denounce," and accused 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney of trying to "destroy" the unity of the Republican Party.

Hillary Clinton was named the winner of the Louisiana Democratic primary just minutes after polls closed, besting Sen. Bernie Sanders, according to several media outlets. With 97 percent of the vote in, Clinton has earned 71 percent of the vote to Sanders' 23 percent. Clinton was favored in the state because of its large population of African-American voters, a demographic that carried her to victory in the South Carolina primary and among whom she generally enjoys strong support. Sanders won the Kansas and Nebraska caucuses earlier Saturday. Kimberly Alters

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has won the Kansas Republican caucus.

With all of the results in, Cruz won 48 percent of the vote in Kansas, followed by Donald Trump with 23 percent, Marco Rubio with 17 percent, and John Kasich with 11 percent. The Kansas Republican Party released a statement earlier Saturday, saying turnout across the state was "incredible," with some locations reporting "four or five" times the number of voters who came out in 2012. Republicans are also caucusing today in Kentucky and Maine, and holding a primary in Louisiana. Catherine Garcia

Bernie Sanders has won Kansas' Democratic caucuses, the state's Democratic Party announced. With nearly 100 percent of the vote in, Sanders won 68 percent of the vote — and 23 delegates — to Hillary Clinton's 32 percent and 10 delegates. The Vermont senator campaigned in the state while Clinton did not, though Clinton did receive the endorsement of Former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. Kimberly Alters

In yet another indicator of the Republican establishment's slipping grip on its party, almost every GOP candidate that was endorsed by a governor has so far lost his or her state. The pattern began with the nation's first contest in Iowa on Feb. 1, when Ted Cruz bested Donald Trump and the rest of the field — much to the chagrin of Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, who actively discouraged Iowans from voting for Cruz. Ahead of the South Carolina primary on Feb. 20, Gov. Nikki Haley threw her much-coveted support behind Marco Rubio — only to see Donald Trump win all 50 of the Palmetto State's delegates. The trend continues:

The only exception to the rule is Texas, where Gov. Greg Abbott endorsed Ted Cruz, and Cruz did in fact carry his home state. Gov. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma has not endorsed a 2016 candidate, nor has Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, though he did suggest he'd like a candidate with "executive experience" — but Donald Trump won Nevada's caucus on Feb. 23. Kimberly Alters
