Hilary Clinton won yet another primary Tuesday night, taking the Democratic contest in Ohio. She scored a big win over rival Bernie Sanders, potentially putting the Democratic nomination within her sights.

Clinton also won primaries in North Carolina and Florida on Tuesday. While those states were within Clinton’s sweet spot in the South, Ohio is a midwestern state, a region where Sanders had been staking his campaign. He looked like he might be able to compete strongly in the area after a surprising win last week in Michigan, but so far it seems like that was the fluke.

Though Sanders has said he will stay in the race until the bitter end, it is not looking good for everyone “feeling the Bern.”
