Cruz wins Wyoming convention; Rubio takes DC

Ted Cruz won most of the delegates at stake in Saturday's Republican county conventions in Wyoming.

The Texas senator won nine of the 12 delegates that were up for grabs. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and billionaire businessman Donald Trump won one apiece. One delegate was uncommitted.

The Associated Press is not declaring a winner in Wyoming on Saturday because another 14 of the state's delegates will be awarded at the party's state convention on April 16.

Meanwhile, Marco Rubio won the Republican presidential caucuses in Washington D.C., according to the the Associated Press.

It's the third presidential contest victory for the Florida senator. Earlier this month, Rubio won the GOP caucuses in Minnesota and the party's primary in Puerto Rico.

Rubio picked up 10 delegates with his Saturday caucus win in the nation's capital. Runner-up John Kasich was just 50 votes behind Rubio, and the Ohio governor will get nine delegates.

None of the other candidates in the race won enough votes to earn any delegates.

Trump leads the overall race for delegates with 460. Cruz has 367, Rubio has 153 and John Kasich has 54.

It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination for president.
