Cruz, Sanders notch gains in primaries

0

WASHINGTON: Democrat 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. Sanders, meanwhile, pulled off a surprise win over rival Hillary Clinton in the Wyoming caucuses, his eighth victory in the last nine contests, and the last vote before New York’s pivotal primary on April 19.
