Cruz gets big delegate wins in Arizona, Virginia
As has been the case in many states, Donald Trump wins the popular vote but Ted Cruz positions favorable delegates in Virginia and Arizona. The Trump camp is crying foul. The Cruz camp is playing by the rules.
This could turn out to be very important if Trump is unable to get to a majority of committed delegates.
If Trump can be stopped from getting to 1,237 before the convention (which he can) then Cruz will be the nominee https://t.co/1mblSNBjDQ

Meanwhile, rumors are spreading the some of Cruz’s past delegate victories are shifting back to Trump.

It all may be moot if Cruz can’t stop Trump from getting to 1,237 delegates before the convention. The most important contest to date happens in Indiana on Tuesday. Whoever wins will be well positioned to be the GOP nominee.
