It was a weekend for the underdogs as Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz both bolstered their delegate counts with victories out west.

Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton in Wyoming, splitting the delegates for that state. Meanwhile, Donald Trump came up short in Colorado’s Republican primary convention as Ted Cruz scooped up all 21 delegates in that race.
