Cruz, Sanders capture Wisconsin primaries
Races for the presidential nominations drew tighter Tuesday as underdogs Republican Ted Cruz and Democrat Bernie Sanders won their parties’ primaries in Wisconsin.
Based on partial vote counts, Texas Sen. Cruz was projected to beat billionaire Donald Trump by 20 percentage points. Vermont Sen. Sanders was expected to beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by about 10 percentage points.
Given the margins, current delegate counts and the ways the parties distribute delegates, Trump was judged by analysts to have suffered a worse defeat than Clinton in the delegate sweepstakes.
Next up: Democrats in Wyoming on Saturday and both parties in New York on April 19.
