VIA| Last night in Colorado, Sen. Ted Cruz picked up six delegates.
Front runner Donald Trump received zero.
Today in North Dakota, it’s looking like another solid outing for the junior Texas senator.
North Dakota Republicans gathered today in Fargo to select the delegates the state will send to the GOP convention is July. As each delegate is unbound on the first ballot, it was crucial for candidates Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich to get their delegates elected today.
Cruz got nearly his entire slate elected. Big victory in ND. Trump whines, Cruz campaigns. https://t.co/zYw2cNWKAx

Trump had an absolutely terrible week with all the back and forth stances on abortion, and Cruz is doing just fine cleaning up behind him.
It’s looking like Cruz will win Wisconsin this coming Tuesday, and two polls show him defeating Hillary Clinton head-to-head while Trump loses.
