Cruz, Sanders Get Wins In Wisconsin; Bradley Wins Court Race
Wisconsin’s most popular presidential primary in 36 years was one big party for Republican Ted Cruz and Democrat Bernie Sanders.
Cruz and Sanders lived up to their billings as favorites in Tuesday’s primary at the expense of front-runners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Cruz capitalized on a wave of support from establishment Republicans eager to derail Trump.
His win slowed the billionaire businessman’s bid to win the GOP nomination outright, with Cruz raking in at least 33 of the state’s 42 delegates.
The payoff wasn’t as rich for Sanders due to proportional allocation on the Democratic side.
It was the Vermont senator’s sixth straight victory.
In Wisconsin’s other closely watched race, Rebecca Bradley beat JoAnne Klloppenburg to win a 10-year term on the state Supreme Court.
