So, I wasn’t going to write about politics today, but I will anyway, sort of. If you haven’t heard Ted Cruz rolled, Trump stalled, and Rubio crashed, and Kasich is doing about as well as the Post Office. Here’s a bit from Powerline:
Ted Cruz and Donald Trump split the four states that voted today, with Trump winning the only primary. Trump was victorious in Louisiana (primary) and Kentucky (caucus). Cruz won caucuses in Maine and Kentucky.
Cruz’s victories were resounding. He defeated Trump 48-23 in Kansas, picking up 24 delegates compared to 9 for Trump, 6 for Marco Rubio, and 1 for John Kasich. In Maine, where apparently fewer than 20,000 people participated, he outpaced Trump 48-33 and won 12 of the 23 available delegates (Trump got 9).
Trump’s victory in the Louisiana primary was a close call: 41.6 for the tycoon and 37.9 for the Texas Senator. In Kentucky too it was close: Trump 35.6, Cruz 31.4.
Marco Rubio didn’t get a sniff tonight. His best showings were in Kentucky and Kansas, where he’s just under 17 percent.
John Kasich did even worse, though he edged out Rubio for third place in Maine.
Ted Cruz spoke to CPAC last week, it’s worth your time!
