Trump Takes Arizona

The Wild, Wild West just got a little wilder in Arizona. Betty Rivas, the owner of Sammy’s Mexican Grill, reported she received threats for supporting Donald Trump’s campaign for president. She was seen on stage at a Trump rally holding a sign reaching “Latinos support D. Trump.”

At 9:30 p.m. Tuesday night, Trump had clinched victory in the Arizona Republican Presidential Primary. He took 46 percent of the vote compared to Senator Ted Cruz’s 22 percent. That was with 63 percent of the precincts reporting.

We endorsed Senator Cruz and he carried Idaho (97 percent of precincts reporting).

All pre-caucus polling in Utah had Cruz comfortably ahead of Trump and Governor John Kasich.

With the win in Arizona, where he claimed 56 delegates, Trump has a reported 739 delegates. Sen. Cruz has 425.

It will take 1,237 delegates to win the GOP nomination, and 2,472 delegates are still up for grabs in primaries to come.
