WASHINGTON (AP) - Donald Trump is marking his several victories on Super Tuesday and is looking forward to a general election fight against Hillary Clinton.

Trump, speaking at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, was introduced by former rival New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who endorsed him last week.

Trump won Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Massachusetts, and Tennessee. Ted Cruz has captured Texas and Oklahoma.

Trump, who has a commanding lead in delegates, mocked Marco Rubio for "having a tough night" because he did not win any states.

And he said that Clinton's call earlier in the night to "make America whole again" - itself a rebuttal to Trump's "Make America Great Again" rallying cry - was an inferior slogan.
