Cruz wins close race in Alaska

AP/Houston Chronicle:
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has won the Republican presidential caucuses in Alaska. It's his third win on Super Tuesday, adding to victories in the Texas and Oklahoma primaries.

Cruz adds 12 delegates to his total with the win in Alaska. Donald Trump will take home 11 delegates from the state, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio gets five delegates.

Cruz's win in Alaska is the final Super Tuesday contest. The 2016 presidential race will resume on Saturday, with primary elections and caucuses in Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine and Nebraska.
Rubio also finally won a state by taking the Minnesota caucuses.  Cruz's win in Texas was the biggest one of the night.  It could provide him momentum over the next two weeks when many more delegates will be selected.
