U.S. Senator Ted Cruz is projected to have won the Republican presidential caucuses in Alaska.
With all the precincts reporting, Cruz narrowly defeated Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner, 7,973 votes (36.4 percent) to 7,346 (33.5 percent), according to the Associated Press.
Alaska will send 28 delegates to the Republican convention in Cleveland on July 18. The win gives Cruz 12 delegates. Trump, who had secured the support of Sarah Palin, the state’s former governor, will take home 11. Marco Rubio, the U.S. senator from Florida, who finished third in the state, will get five. Alaska Dispatch News reported that, in all, 21,930 votes were cast.
So even though Sarah Palin virtually destroyed what little credibility she still had among conservatives by endorsing Trump, she still could not even help him to win her home state.
Not only that but apparently she could not even convince one of her family members to caucus with her either.
I mean where's Todd? Or Willow? Or Bristol? Or anybody really, besides one of the people in the state that she pays to be her friend?
Like I said, sad.
Or from my perspective, really really satisfying.
