Trump, Clinton aim for Michigan wins to expand leads in White House race

U.S. Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump listens to the cheers of supporters at Madison Central High School during at a campaign rally in Madison MississippiBy John Whitesides DETROIT (Reuters) – Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton look to build on their leads in the presidential nominating races when four states vote on Tuesday, and polls show both front-runners comfortably ahead in the biggest prize of Michigan. Trump hopes to regain his momentum after suffering a week of blistering attacks from the party’s establishment and splitting four contests on Saturday with rival Ted Cruz, who positioned himself as the prime alternative to the brash billionaire in the race for the party’s nomination for the Nov. 8 election. The establishment favorite, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, lags behind and is seen needing a breakthrough win in his home state next week to keep his campaign alive.
