WASHINGTON (AP) – Marco Rubio will collect all 23 of Puerto Rico’s delegates after posting a huge win in the U.S. territory. But he still lags far behind rivals Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.
Like many states, Puerto Rico awards all the GOP delegates to a candidate who gets more than 50 percent of the vote. Rubio was well above that threshold in the Sunday contest.READ MORE: 30 Students 'Positively Identified' In Woodland Hills High School Cafeteria Brawl
