Ted Cruz Takes Kansas Caucus, Pulling Closer To Trump

Ted Cruz has won the Kansas GOP caucus by a significant margin, further closing the gap between him and GOP front-runner Donald Trump.
Early results show the Texas senator was able to secure about half of the vote, with Trump taking second place and rival Sen. Marco Rubio a distant third.
The results shouldn't be too much of a shock: Cruz's message plays well with Kansas' population of deeply Christian conservative voters. Trump has proven particularly vulnerable in states that hold caucuses rather than straightforward primaries: he's lost four of the five caucuses held so far.
