Colorado, Wyoming hold Saturday focus in presidential race

Republican Ted Cruz looks to add to his edge in Colorado. Bernie Sanders is coming off a Wisconsin win.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. _ The presidential race is turning West to focusing on Colorado and Wyoming.

Republican Ted Cruz looks to add to his edge in Colorado over front-runner Donald Trump when 13 more delegates are chosen at the Republican state convention on Saturday.

Cruz already has locked up the support of 21 Colorado delegates. Trump holds an overall lead nationally, but there’s seems to be a real chance no one will reach the 1,237 mark needed to win nomination at the national convention in Cleveland in July.

Wyoming Democrats are holding caucuses Saturday.

At stake are 14 of Wyoming’s 18 convention delegates.

The state is overwhelmingly Republican: More than 140,000 residents are registered Republicans, compared with about 41,000 registered Democrats.

Bernie Sanders is coming off a victory over Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin on Tuesday.
