Cruz, Sanders notch gains in White House primaries

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz addresses the Republican Convention at The Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado Springs, Colorado on Saturday, April 9, 2016Democrat Bernie Sanders and Republican Ted Cruz both scored weekend victories against their front-running rivals in a tightening race as the two major parties prepare to pick their White House nominee. Cruz, the Texas Senator, chipped away at Donald Trump’s lead by taking all 13 Colorado delegates at stake in a state Republican convention Saturday, notching his fourth win in a row against the brash billionaire with 10 days to go until a pivotal primary in New York. “Today was another resounding victory for conservatives, Republicans, and Americans who care about the future of our country,” said the arch-conservative Cruz, who had already swept the previous 21 delegates at play in Colorado through a series of county elections.
