Ted Cruz is about to click his heels and say ‘There’s no place like home,’ because he just won the Kansas Republican caucus. When the results came in on March 5, Ted was declared the winner when he overpowered Marco Rubio, Donald Trump and John Kasich by a huge margin.
Everything is coming up sunshine for Ted Cruz in the Sunflower State. After a bitter debate that saw Ted take on his Republican rivals, he scored big by winning the Kansas GOP caucus by a landslide. See how much he beat Donald Trump, Marco Rubio and John Kasich by, here.
Ted took home the victory on March 5, scoring big in Kansas after engaging in a heated debate on March 3. Ted totally crushed his fellow Republican candidates, taking home 51.2% of the vote, with current leader Donald coming in way behind with 24.1% and Marco even further with 14.4%. Ted can now add this to his previous 4 wins, and become even more of a competition to Donald.
Donald was favored to win this primary, especially after his vicious clashes with his fellow candidates and the 2012 Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, 68. While Mitt hated how Donald’s “bombast” and “third grade theatrics,” something about him has connected with voters. “He’s bold. He’s brazen,” Vicki Sciolaro, a Kansas resident, told The Kansas City Star. “People are tired of the same old same old.”
Donald certainly isn’t the “same old.” There hasn’t been a political candidate who labels all Mexican immigrants as “rapists and drug dealers” while still having his clothes manufactured below the border. Donald’s probably the only candidate who’d openly call one of his rivals “a p*ssy,” comparing another to a “child molester” while making fun of a third candidate’s height.
It seems that Vicki is right, as Donald has won the most primaries and caucuses so far. Though he lost Iowa, Donald rebounded in New Hampshire, swept South Carolina, scored a jackpot in Nevada and had a really incredible Super Tuesday. Can anyone stop him?
