Sanders wins Wyoming, Cruz sweeps Colorado

san{BNN} – COLORADO, U.S. – While Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders continued his string of victories by winning the Wyoming Democratic Caucuses, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz marked a sweeping victory in Colorado.

Vermont Senator, Sanders won the last Democratic contest in Wyoming caucuses ahead of the April 19 New York primary beating Hillary Clinton statewide by about 11 percentage points.

The result however has ended in a tie, with each candidate taking seven of Wyoming’s 14 pledged delegates. Clinton still holds a nationwide lead at 219. Sanders has so far recorded big victories in Washington State, Alaska, Idaho, Utah, Hawaii and Wisconsin.

The race now moves to major primaries in New York and other places in the Northeast.

In his statement, Sanders thanked Wyoming voters.

Meanwhile, in Colorado, Republican Ted Cruz recorded a clean sweep victory, that was further celebrated as the Texas Senator swept all of the state’s delegate elections, picked up the remaining 13 that brought his total to 34.

Cruz campaign said in the victory statement, “Today was another resounding victory for conservatives, Republicans, and Americans who care about the future of our country.”

However, much like affairs in the Democratic party, Cruz still trails Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner.

Both local media and experts on the other hand criticized Trump’s campaign for being “disorganised, frustrated and plagued by mistakes.”

A report said that his supporters in Colorado said they were frustrated with the campaign’s chaotic and uncommunicative campaign, which failed to reach basic levels of competence.

The flyers distributed at the convention site reportedly had errors in the ballot numbers, misspelled delegate names and mismatched figures that led to confusion and ballot inconsistencies.
