Yesterday, the people of Wisconsin went to the polls to cast their preference in the presidential primary, an exciting day following a pretty bland week without any primaries to keep our eye on the prize.  When the results came in late Tuesday night, Ted Cruz took home the prize for the Republicans, and Bernie Sanders captured the majority of the Democratic vote.

Many pundits speculated on the Trump-Cruz rivalry going into Wisconsin, with Cruz leading Trump in most polls. Prior to Wisconsin, Cruz was trailing Trump by just over 200 delegates, and Kasich was behind Cruz by almost three hundred. Trump was clocking in with 737. 1,237 delegates are needed to clinch the Republican nomination, and while 1,385 have been allotted, 900 are still available.

Wisconsin awards 42 delegates.

Here are the results of the Wisconsin primary:

The next primaries are coming your way on Tuesday, April 19th, when New York citizens take to the polls. What will happen in the days leading up to New York? Only time will tell. Will Bernie and Hillary have that debate they’ve been talking about? Will we hear from the Republican candidates again? Will another faux-scandal break through the headlines, and will it be denied or left to fester for a few days? What will happen with Trump’s campaign manager? Will the DNC chairman continue to be challenged about blocking Sanders? Will any other former nominees or sitting legislators announce their endorsements? Will all the candidates remain in the race?
