Last night’s primary/caucus results were a mixed bag as both Donald trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz both picked up substantial victories that at evenings end pretty much wound up being a net delegate tie. Trump won all of the 58 delegates in Arizona, while Cruz did the same in Utah (40 delegates) with nearly 70% of the vote.
Kasich was no where to be found in any of the three races and gained no delegates. Its a mystery why this man is still in the race as he has no path to win the nomination and maybe no path to win another state or delegates.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s big win in Utah means he will get all 40 of the state’s delegates to the Republican National Convention.
Cruz has a very limited path to clinch the nomination before the party’s convention this summer.
But if he can start winning more contests, he can stop front-runner Donald Trump from doing so.
Trump won the most delegates on Tuesday, picking up all 58 in Arizona’s Republican primary. Republicans also caucused Tuesday in American Samoa, where Trump and Cruz each picked up a delegate.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich was shut out for the night, leaving him with fewer delegates than Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who quit the race last week.
The AP delegate count:
Needed to win the nomination: 1,237.
