Last night's Super Tuesday results were just one step in an epic story.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Donald Trump has added to his lead among Republican voters, defeating opponents who call him a bully and a fraud.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., called out GOP candidate Donald Trump for insufficiently rebuking David Duke, a former Ku Klux Klan leader, and his white supremacist politics.

"This is the kind of moment where we should be having a serious debate about the policies to restore the American idea. Instead the conversation over the last few days has been about white supremacists groups," he told reporters Tuesday after the weekly House GOP meeting.

Ryan has, for the most part, stayed out of presidential politics.
