Ted Cruz scored a shutout in Colorado. He swept the Colorado GOP convention, picking up 13 of the state’s at-large delegates. Plus, he had already picked up 21 delegates throughout the last week from the state’s seven congressional districts.
Cruz said in response to the Colorado results:
Today was another resounding victory for conservatives, Republicans, and Americans who care about the future of our country. Utah, North Dakota, Wisconsin, and tonight’s incredible results in Colorado have proven this: Republicans are uniting behind our campaign because they want a leader with real solutions who will bring back jobs, freedom, and security.
This election is about the hope that our children can still have a more promising landscape of opportunity than generations past. It’s about bringing together Americans from all backgrounds who know that we will be stronger, more prosperous, and infinitely more free if we return power in Washington back to the people. So that Americans are free to create better jobs, live and worship freely, and once again proudly defend ‘the last best hope of earth.
Thank you, Colorado, and we ask moms and dads, students and retirees across this country to join us so that together we make this election a turning point for the nation.
It seems like the Cruz campaign is picking up some steam with recent wins in Utah and Wisconsin, and picking up more delegates than frontrunner Donald Trump in North Dakota. But it should be noted that Trump still has a big lead in term of delegates (743 to 532) and the GOP primary campaign is now headed into Trump territory on the East Coast.
