Ted Cruz swept the Republican National Convention delegate selection process in Colorado, displaying a strong grassroots organizational effort and greater popularity among the western state’s most committed party activists.

The showing from the junior senator from Texas highlighted Donald Trump’s lack of a robust national political organization, a problem that could doom the Republican front-runner and political novice at the party’s national convention in July.

Delegates backing Cruz won all of the slots for participation at the national convention in Cleveland, with the final 13 being selected at the end of a day-long convention Saturday in Colorado Springs. That gave Cruz 34 delegates in the state.

“You all have been a part of something incredible that has happened over the last three weeks,” Cruz told more than 5,000 party activists at the convention earlier on Saturday as he reflected on recent victories in Utah and Wisconsin as well as Colorado.

    problem with T-RUMP is that ONLY BELIEVING in HIS OWN INEXPERIENCE outside of TV and ERECTING BUILDINGS he SCREWED HIMSELF UP as OPPOSED TO A SMARTER in POLITICS and ORGANIZATION ABILITY OF CRUZ….He loses and WHINES…YES some Preview of what we could see whenever a Democrat Congress could Put Him THROUGH…WHININGS!

    I am a Cruz supporter, but I will vote for whomever becomes the nominee.
    I would like to see less animosity shown between supporters of the various
    candidates and some hope that we can come together at the end to beat the
    worst candidate of all; HILLARY !!

    Pretty good after the state denied the voter their right to vote. And it was denied because the word was out that many were voting for Trump. Something is wrong in Colorado.

    Cruz campaign cheats Trump out of victory. The republican est. helps him by changing deligates t deligates that vote cruz.

      You lost. You deserve to lose. Americans are figuring out the foul mouthed “liberal” who is pretending to be a conservative is to be REJECTED.
      Get over it.

    It shows several things to me. First Senator Cruz knows what he is doing. Second the trumpster doesn’t know what he is doing. Third, Cruz has organizational skills and people willing to work hard for him. Fourth, the trumpster does not have the organizational skills to run the country nor does he have the people willing to work there butts off for him. The list goes on but I think it is obvious who knows what they are doing and it is NOT the one with the initials DJT.
