Cruz winning the race for delegates in Colorado

Ted Cruz is well positioned to beat Donald Trump for delegates in Colorado.

The Texas senator appears to have more supporters than the billionaire front-runner does among delegate candidates. The battle for the Republican presidential nomination looks increasingly likely to leave neither with a majority of delegates at the end of primary season, which could turn the GOP convention into a titanic fight.

The next primary is in Wisconsin on April 5, and after that it's Colorado. There, 34 of the 37 convention delegates up for grabs will be directly elected in a series of local contests beginning early next month. Of those, 21 are elected three per congressional district. Based on a review of the pledged candidates running in two of the districts, Cruz has the edge over Trump.

"If you look at the current pledged delegates, Ted Cruz had more pledged delegates than anybody," Colorado Republican Party Chairman Steve House told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday. "I think that's relevant."

House, who as state chairman is an unpledged delegate to the Cleveland convention, including on the first ballot, said that he has not yet decided whether to support Cruz, Trump or Ohio Gov. John Kasich. House said he has not been contacted by any of the campaigns, but expects that to change.
