The Maine Republican Party says Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has beaten New York businessman Donald Trump in the state’s Republican presidential caucuses.
The party made the announcement Saturday night. The Associated Press has not called the race in Maine as it waits for formal results from the state party.
The victory by Cruz comes as opponents of GOP front-runner Donald Trump try to stop his momentum after the billionaire businessman’s strong showing on Super Tuesday.
Cruz came to the state on Friday to campaign at the University of Maine a day after Trump rallied supporters in Portland.
