Cruz, Sanders Win Utah Caucuses

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Bernie Sanders has won Utah's Democratic presidential caucus, though he remains hundreds of delegates behind Hillary Clinton.

The Vermont senator campaigned hard in Utah over the last week. He appeared twice at rallies that drew thousands of people, many of them young voters.  

Ted Cruz won Utah's Republican presidential caucus to score a key victory in his bid to close the gap on front runner Donald Trump.

Cruz is on pace to take all of the state's delegates by finishing with more than 50 percent of the vote.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich was running second with Trump in last place.
