GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz is securing a majority of the delegates from county Republican parties in Wyoming, with over half of the results in Saturday afternoon.
Republicans in Sheridan, Sweetwater, Laramie, Hot Springs, Converse and Uinta counties selected delegates who are pledging to support the U.S. senator from Texas in the Republican National Convention in July.
In Albany County, Republicans selected a delegate who will support Marco Rubio, a U.S. senator from Florida.
The delegate from Teton County will support businessman Donald Trump.
Republican parties in all 23 counties are meeting Saturday to select delegates or alternates to the Cleveland convention, the second of a three-part process to nominate the president for the state's majority party.
Wyoming will send a total of 29 delegates to Cleveland. Twelve are being chosen Saturday. An additional 14 delegates will be chosen at the Wyoming State GOP convention in Casper next month, and three Republicans in state GOP leadership are automatic delegates: Matt Micheli, state party chairman, Marti Halverson, state committeewoman, and Greg Schaefer, state committeeman.
It will take 1,237 delegates for any Republican presidential candidate to receive a majority.
Of the remaining presidential candidates in the Republican field, Cruz is the only one to have visited Wyoming. He spoke in Cheyenne in August at a Wyoming GOP fundraiser. Kasich visited the state Legislature last January, although it was before he had jumped into the race.
Rubio has not visited Wyoming. On Friday and Saturday, U.S. Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, spoke to Republicans on his behalf at events in Teton and Sweetwater counties, Rubio's campaign said. And last month, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colorado, spoke to Republicans in Cheyenne.
Republicans in Natrona County, which this year selects an alternate to the national convention, selected a delegate who committed to Cruz.
Highlights from the counties:
In Sheridan County, 45 Republicans voted for Cruz and 30 voted for Rubio. No delegates offered to pledge for Trump or Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
In Sweetwater County, 45 people supported Cruz, 28 supported Rubio, 16 supported Trump and no one supported Kasich.
In Albany County, 39 people supported Rubio and 37 supported Cruz.
In Teton County, 21 Republicans supported Trump and 19 supported Rubio.
In Laramie County, 141 people voted for Cruz, 38 voted for Rubio and 37 supported a delegate who signed a pledge to travel to the national convention not pledged to any one candidate.
In Hot Springs County, 43 people voted for Cruz.
In Converse County, 38 people selected Cruz and 35 selected Rubio.
In Uinta County, 53 people supported Cruz.
What, 490 votes? LOL Come Tuesday Teddy is going to get his BLM & Muslim lovin butt handed to him.
Cruz is a joke now. He lacks constitutional eligibility under the Article II of the United States Constitution. and he is a liar!!
Well Teddy will likely win the Canadian and Cuban primaries. :-)
Ted is racking up all the important states - Alaska, Kansas, Maine, Wyoming, Idaho, Oklahoma.
Cruz is done, I guess the people in Wyoming just didn’t get the message yet
Sorry, I am not going to vote for someone who stands up for the terrorists
Add another insignificant red state to Cruz’s column. He’s gonna have a bad night on Tuesday.
After his coments from yesterday (I.e. Blaming Trump), this will most likely be his LAST real victory!!
This is basically one of those in house GOP delegations. Set up by the Bushes and Romney.
Wyoming is Cheney country.
Cruz is a horrible person IMO. He is 100% fake. HE WAS TPP!!!!
Hey, Dick Cheney lives there.
Wow, he lost a bunch of Twitter delegates?
Noticed you neglected to list Texas....why is that?
Who in the hell votes for Ted Cruz after last night?
Many millions of people.
Followers. That’s real easy to see.
Yet he keeps winning. LOL
