Ted Cruz poised to win Wyoming Republican presidential primary contest

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz speaks on stage during a campaign event in Rochester, New YorkBy Ginger Gibson CASPER, Wyo. (Reuters) – Republican U.S. presidential hopeful Ted Cruz is expected to win most of the 14 delegates up for grabs on Saturday in Wyoming, likely besting rival Donald Trump, who made little effort to win the rural state, and further narrowing the gap in the race for the party’s nomination. Cruz is trying to prevent Trump from obtaining the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination at the July convention in Cleveland. By continuing to rack up small wins, Cruz is gaining ground on the New York real estate mogul, who has thus far failed to shift his focus on the local-level campaigning necessary to win delegates.
