U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas chalked up another victory over businessman Donald Trump in Colorado on Saturday by winning all of the state’s available delegates to the Republican National Convention, continuing a series of successes before a string of tough primaries in the coming weeks.
As the Colorado Republican state convention finalized its 37-member delegation Saturday, Mr. Cruz shut out his rivals to win 13 at-large delegates on top of the 21 delegates he had already picked up from the state’s seven congressional districts over the last week. The remaining three delegates are top state party officials.
Even before the final ballots were tallied, Mr. Cruz spoke to the convention and enumerated his recent successes: winning the Utah caucuses three weeks ago, securing more delegates than Mr. Trump in North Dakota last weekend, and scoring a victory in Wisconsin’s primary last Tuesday.
“We now effectively have a two-person race,” Mr. Cruz said in an ice-hockey arena filled with more than 6,000 Republicans from around the state. “Y’all have been part of something incredible that has happened in the last three weeks.”Read the rest of the story HERE.
