Trump Collects Most Delegates in Nevada Caucuses
WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump will collect the most delegates from the Nevada caucuses. But even though he won by a large margin, he might not get a majority of the 30 delegates at stake.
Trump won at least 12 delegates and Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz won at least five apiece. Eight delegates are still left to be allocated. Nevada Republicans award delegates in proportion to the statewide vote, so a candidate can win a delegate with as little as 3.3 percent of the vote.
Overall, Trump has 79 delegates, Cruz has 16 and Rubio has 15. John Kasich has five delegates and Ben Carson has three. It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination for president.
