This weekend was a good weekend for Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign. Cruz swept up all of the available delegates in Colorado’s District and State Republican Conventions adding a total of 34 delegates to his number.

Colorado offers 37 total delegates, but three of the delegates are the party chairman, national committeeman and national committeewoman who are not pledged to a campaign.

“Today was another resounding victory for conservatives, Republicans, and Americans who care about the future of our country. Utah, North Dakota, Wisconsin, and tonight’s incredible results in Colorado have proven this: Republicans are uniting behind our campaign because they want a leader with real solutions who will bring back jobs, freedom, and security,” Cruz said in a released statement.

“This election is about the hope that our children can still have a more promising landscape of opportunity than generations past. It’s about bringing together Americans from all backgrounds who know that we will be stronger, more prosperous, and infinitely more free if we return power in Washington back to the people. So that Americans are free to create better jobs, live and worship freely, and once again proudly defend ‘the last best hope of earth,” Cruz added. “Thank you, Colorado, and we ask moms and dads, students and retirees across this country to join us so that together we make this election a turning point for the nation.”

Iowa Republicans held their district conventions on Saturday and voted for the delegates that are allocated by congressional district totally 12 in all.  The rest of the delegates minus three delegates slots for the chairman, national committeeman and national committeewoman will be voted on at the state convention that will be held on May 21.

Eleven of the 12 delegates have pledged their support to U.S. Senator Ted Cruz the Associated Press reports. The exception would be Mariannette Miller-Meeks who as a state central committee member has remained neutral before and after the Iowa Caucuses.

Iowa’s delegates are bound during the first ballot of the Republican National Convention, but are unbound if an additional ballot was required. Cruz was allocated 8 delegates based on the Iowa Caucuses results, Donald Trump was allocated 7, Marco Rubio was also allocated 7, and Ben Carson was allocated 3. Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee, John Kasich and Carly Fiorina all were allocated 1 delegate.

  1. Whatever games the establishment is playing, I think it’s going to come back to bite them very badly. When people are cut out of voting, there’s trouble to pay. It may not have been behind closed doors but it still doesn’t excuse the games played and it’s not going to be beneficial for them.
