Cruz sweeps delegates at Colorado convention

Sunday, April 10, 2016

WASHINGTON -- Ted Cruz has completed a clean sweep of Colorado delegates to the Republican National Convention by picking up 13 delegates.

Cruz ran the table at the Colorado Republican convention on Saturday in Colorado Springs. He had won all 21 delegates up for grabs at assemblies in the state's seven congressional districts during the week. Saturday's victory gives him a total of 34 delegates in the state.

The front-runner for the GOP nomination, Donald Trump, was late organizing in the state. While shut out of delegates, he did win seven alternate delegates on Saturday.
