Cruz gets dominant win in Idaho

Ted Cruz wins Idaho Republican primary

With 97 percent of precincts reporting, the Texas senator has 45 percent of the vote. GOP front runner Donald Trump is in second place with 28 percent, while Florida Senator Marco Rubio has 16 percent and Ohio Governor John Kasich has 7.4 percent.
Cruz got 20 of the 32 delegates.  Trump got 12 and Rubio and Kasich got none.  Idaho is another state where Cruz outperformed his polling and Trump underperformed.  Cruz also got a lot of bang for the minimal amount of money invested in Michigan where he came in second.

David Freddoso says Trump made a major gaffe by telling Idaho that he would protect their potatoe market.  However, Idaho EXPORTS potatoes and protective tariffs would lead to being shut out of foreign markets.
