Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders scored big victories in Wisconsin’s presidential primaries Tuesday, dampening Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s hopes of wrapping up the race any time soon — and putting heavy pressure on the front-runners to recapture the momentum in contests later this month.
Both Cruz and Sanders charged out of Wisconsin claiming momentum was turning in their favor. Sanders, who notched his sixth victory in the last seven state contests, won all but three of the Badger State’s 72 counties.
“And we have won almost all of them with overwhelming, landslide numbers,” Sanders told an ebullient crowd of supporters Tuesday night….

Ted Cruz – 48.3%

John Kasich – 14.1%
Cruz netted 33 delegates, Trump 3 delegates
Hillary Clinton – 56.5%
