WASHINGTON – Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz split victories in four nominating contests with front-runner Donald Trump on Saturday, bolstering Cruz’s argument that he represents the party’s best chance to stop the brash New York billionaire.
The results were a repudiation of a Republican establishment that has bristled at the prospect of either Cruz or Trump winning the party’s nomination and has largely lined up behind US Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, who was shut out in all four contests.
“I think it’s time that he dropped out of the race,” Trump said of Rubio after the contests. “I want Ted one on one.”
