Madison, Wisc. (NBC) — In the race for president: Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders are winners Wednesday morning in Wisconsin’s primary. “Tonight is a turning point. It is a rallying cry,” said Ted Cruz, (R) Presidential Candidate.
Ted Cruz won double digits over Donald Trump in Wisconsin.
An NBC exit poll shows he dominated among wealthy voters, those looking for experience and Republicans determined to win in November. “Hillary get ready, here we come,” said Cruz.
Trump downplayed Wisconsin. “I’m millions of votes more than anybody else,” said Donald Trump, (R) Presidential Candidate.
In fact, Cruz and his supporters admit it could take a second vote at July’s convention for Cruz to win the nomination. “This is the guy who can bring the party together,” said Governor Scott Walker, (R) Wisconsin.
Bernie Sanders celebrated his double-digit victory from Wyoming. Their caucuses happen this weekend – but he’s already looking ahead to New York. “Do not tell Secretary Clinton. She’s getting a little nervous and I don’t want her to get more nervous, but I believe we’ve got an excellent chance to win New York,” said Bernie Sanders, (D) Presidential Candidate.
Clinton tweeted “to all the voters and volunteer who poured your hearts into this campaign: forward!”
Sanders benefited from a huge turnout of men and young voters who signed up the day of the primary.
Republicans also saw a record turnout – nearly a million voters.
Today the democrats are in Pennsylvania. The republicans are in New York.
