The AP on Saturday said it is not declaring a winner in Wyoming’s voting contest, however. Another 14 delegates will be meted out during the state GOP’s convention on April 16.

Trump remains the delegate kingpin nationwide, the AP noted, boasting 460 delegates. Cruz is next with 369 delegates, followed by 153 for Rubio and 54 for Gov. John Kasich (Ohio).

The Republican presidential nomination requires 1,237 delegates before the party’s national convention in Cleveland in July.

Tuesday is the next big day of voting contests, with five states casting ballots nationwide.

Florida and Ohio’s GOP presidential primaries are especially vital, with the former awarding 99 delegates and the latter 66 delegates in winner-takes-all contests.

Missouri, Illinois and North Carolina Republican primary voters also head to the polls Tuesday, as do those in the Northern Mariana Islands, a U.S. territory.

Trump leads the Republican presidential field by more than 14 points nationwide, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.

Cruz has repeatedly argued he is the best option for stopping the billionaire’s march to the nomination, as he has had the most success with voters against him.
