WASHINGTON (AP) – Ted Cruz won most of the delegates at stake in Saturday’s Republican county conventions in Wyoming.

The Texas senator won nine of the 12 delegates that were up for grabs. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and billionaire businessman Donald Trump won one apiece. One delegate was uncommitted.

The Associated Press is not declaring a winner in Wyoming on Saturday because another 14 of the state’s delegates will be awarded at the party’s state convention on April 16.

Trump leads the overall race for delegates with 460. Cruz has 367, Rubio has 153 and John Kasich has 54.

It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination for president.
