Republican Presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (Republican-Texas) is looking forward to a victory over rivals Gov. John Kasich (Repulican-Ohio) and Donald Trump in the Wisconsin Republican Primary this Tuesday. This comes amid a torrid week for Donald Trump as his campaign is marred by reports of violence insinuated by his supporters, with particular emphasis on his campaign manager facing criminal charges for physically attacking a female protester. As it stands, Donald Trump is leading the Republican Primaries in terms of pledged delegates. Trump leads with 737 delegates, followed by Cruz’s 475 and Kasich’s 143. A Republican candidate would need to secure 1237 delegates to win the nomination with 930 delegates still up for grabs. The winner in Tuesday’s Wisconsin primary can win as much as 42 delegates.
Meanwhile, in the Democratic caucuses, Sen. Bernie Sanders (Independent-Vermont) is looking forward to a victory over rival Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s Wisconsin Democratic Primaries. Without accounting for Superdelegates (delegates to the Democratic National Convention who vote through their own will), Clinton is leading Sanders by only 263 pledged delegates. This comes as Sanders is fresh from surprising victories in the Alaska, Hawaii and Washington caucuses which gave the Sanders Campaign a much needed boost in the race to the Democratic nomination. Unlike Sanders, Clinton skipped dropping by Wisconsin to campaign and instead chose to prepare for the New York caucuses in two weeks’ time which is interpreted by some a hint at conceding a possible defeat. Either candidate can win as much as 86 delegates in the Wisconsin Democratic Caucuses.
