Cruz leading Trump in Colorado delegate selection process
Ted Cruz is well-positioned to beat Donald Trump for delegates in Colorado.This probably reflects the Cruz campaign's superior organizational skills as well as Trump having peaked in recent weeks.
The Texas senator appears to have more supporters than the billionaire front-runner does among delegate candidates. The battle for the Republican presidential nomination looks increasingly likely to leave neither with a majority of delegates at the end of primary season, which could turn the GOP convention into a titanic fight.
The next primary is in Wisconsin on April 5, and after that it's Colorado. There, 34 of the 37 convention delegates up for grabs will be directly elected in a series of local contests beginning early next month. Of those, 21 are elected three per congressional district. Based on a review of the pledged candidates running in two of the districts, Cruz has the edge over Trump.
