According to Fox News, Texas Senator Ted Cruz is the projected winner in Wisconsin. At press time, Cruz leads New York billionaire Donald Trump by a margin of 52-30, with Ohio Governor John Kasich a distant third at nearly 15 percent. 

This is a major victory for Cruz, who has now chalked up resounding victories in two states with very conservative Republican parties, and a setback for Trump, who may have suffered after sending a tweet disparaging Cruz's wife in response to a negative ad put out by an unaffiliated SuperPAC. While the delegates have yet to be counted, this could prevent Trump from obtaining the 1237 delegates he needs to secure the nomination, and makes a contested convention more likely.
