According to Fox News exit polls and early vote tallies, Ted Cruz and John Kasich are locked in a battle for second place, while Marco Rubio appears headed for a fourth-place finish.

Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders is poised for a possible upset of Hillary Clinton tonight in the state.

It’s too early to project a winner on the Democratic side, but at this time Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are in a surprisingly close battle for the top spot, according to exit polls and early voting returns.

This is a departure from months of pre-election polls, which consistently showed Clinton with a double-digit lead over Sanders in Michigan.
