WISCONSIN PRIMARY RESULTS

(ABC/FOX/GOP.com) Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders walked away with wins in the Wisconsin Primary. The Democratic win gives Sanders another push in his momentum, walking away with six of the last seven Democratic primaries. These results beg the question: how worried are Hilary Clinton and her campaign employees about the Sanders surge?

Cruz gained some momentum with the win, but Trump still holds the lead on the Republican side. New York is on the horizon, and the state’s primary could be a make-or-break point for both front-runners.

POSSIBLE SONIC ARENA IN SEATTLE HITTING SNAGS

Chris Hansen has long been trying to bring back an NBA team in Seattle. The arena he is proposing to build would be just south of Safeco Field on Occidental Avenue.

However, businesses in that area fear that the increase in traffic would deter their customer base and push out local business. Other businesses say this would be an economic boom in the area because of the increased foot traffic.

Port of Seattle Commissioner Stephanie Bowman believes the city would be risking port jobs and that there are bigger issues at hand such as homelessness, income inequality, and the loss of middle-class jobs.

Voting on the arena is expected to take place at the end of the month.
