Ted Cruz looking to scoop up more Colorado delegates

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has locked up the support of 21 Colorado delegates and may scoop up even more Saturday.
    
Slates loyal to Cruz won every assembly in the state’s seven congressional districts, which began April 2 and culminated Friday with 12 delegates selected.
    
The Texas senator is well-positioned to pad his total Saturday, when 13 more delegates were to be chosen at the party’s state convention.
    
According to an Associated Press count, Trump has 743 delegates, Cruz has 532 and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sihk) has 143. It takes 1,237 to clinch the nomination, though there’s a real chance no candidate will reach that mark by the national convention in Cleveland in July.
    
Of Cruz’s Colorado delegates so far, only 17 were formally pledged to him. But they were all included on the senator’s slates and are largely state party officials who said they were barred from signing a formal pledge for Cruz but have promised to back him in balloting at the convention.
