Kansas delivered an impressive caucus win for Senator Ted Cruz, while three other contests were better for Donald Trump although it feels like Trump has slipped and may have trouble getting to the convention with 1237 delegates.
GOP royalty is trying to force an open convention where they can deny The Donald, but since they don't like Cruz much either, there is a problem getting someone else in.
The events of the last week and the frat house sparring and tacky talk has taken a toll. People I talk to who don't live and breath this stuff were chattering about the debate in Detroit and what these people are saying about each other. Yes, people do have standards and more than one person eschewed the talk as beneath the Presidency.
It looks to me like Marco Rubio took one for the party as his antics diminished him, but for Mr. Trump....well he should know better at his age.
Tuesday its on to Idaho, Mississippi and Michigan.
Oh by the way, Cruz just won Maine with Trump second, Kasich third and Little Marco last among the still active candidates.. Trump seems well ahead in Kentucky with Senator Rubio well back in third.
Louisiana is still voting as I write this.
As for the Dems, Sanders continues to win the states with , as they say on MSNBC, too many white people.
