NIPPING AT HEELS

Cruz and Bernie Win Two States Each

Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders are each the projected winners in two of Saturday’s presidential primary races. In the Republican races, the Texan senator won the Kansas and Maine caucuses, beating frontrunner Donald Trump by a 25-percent margin in the former and 13 percent in the latter. Trump, however, took the Kentucky caucus and the Louisiana primary, with Cruz finishing in second in both. Over on the Democratic side, the Vermont senator took both the Kansas and Nebraska caucuses, beating Hillary Clinton by double-digit margins in both races. The former secretary of state—who is still the favorite in the Democratic race—won the Lousiana primary by a substantial 45-percent margin.
