Politico will have the results.

Trump will probably easily win Louisiana, Maine and Kentucky, but Kansas will be iffy between he and Cruz.

Ironically, Rand Paul’s campaign will have to pay the state of Kentucky $250,000 because the way the Kentucky caucuses were scheduled, they were meant to resolve the problem of Rand Paul running for both President and re-election to the Senate.  Of course we know how his Presidential campaign turned out.

Kansas’s results are being reported by its four Congressional districts, and unless CD-3, Kansas City suburbs, are heavy duty Trump country, then Big Ricky looks like he’s going to take Kansas easily.

Strategic voting by Rubio supporters in Kansas? Or just a lot of people that look at Cruz and like what they see?

Kansas is in Cruz’s wheelhouse. One north of Oklahoma, two north of Texas, and close to Iowa. Santorum won Kansas by a blowout margin in 2012, and Huckabee the same in 2008.

If Cruz didn’t win KS he might as well have not run at all. When I think of States likely to be alienated by Trump’s brash and worldly, New York manner, KS is right at the top. I do wonder how many KS votes he lost by leading with his privates the other night, though.

Damn Fundies. I’m not surprised that Big Ricky won, but I thought it’d be a lot closer than 48-23. At least Lubio didn’t get any delegates.

Politico had the delegate count wrong for KS. Now they’re saying Cruz 24, Trump 9, Pool Boy 6, Kucksick 1

Kansas is like East Tennessee, any Republican will do, but “moderate” types are preferred.

Kansas is all counted. In 2008, there were 19k total votes, in 2012, 30k total votes, this year, 73k total votes. KS-3 not only turned out not to be Trump country, but Rubio finished slightly ahead of Trump for 2nd place.

Maine is really starting to worry me.

UPDATE

Just as I write that, the media declare Maine for Big Ricky.

This is turning out to be less than an ideal day.

I’m going to celebrate Kucksick beating the Pool Boy in Maine.

This dismal state has taken a toll on the mental well-being of many conservatives, and in turn, many of the distraught have started to resemble the notorious lunatics of the Left: social justice warriors.

Maybe Trump can make it to 55 percent in Michigan

The Eastland Center mall was closed Saturday morning after a large crowd converged for the release of new Nike Air Jordans, according to broadcast reports.

Mall security confirmed the mall was shut down and expected to reopen around noon, but would provide no other details about the incident.

Ace already calls Louisiana for Trump. With the way things were going, that LA is next door to TX scared me.

Ace just called Kentucky for Trump, but it’s gonna be close. Meanwhile, Big Ricky is starting to catch up in the delegate race.

Big Ricky partisans are going to squak about Maine big time. It’s a New England state, heretofore Trump country, and Cruz won it in spite of it being in New England and in spite of the far bigger turnout (see above).

Trump snarked that Cruz won ME because it borders Canada.

Trump is obviously bringing more people into the primary process than ever before. However, along with the Trump people, a lot of other folks are coming in too, and it looks like Cruz is the official anti-Trump.

In a way Trump has had a palliative effect on Cruz: D.C. still hates Cruz, but they don’t hate him like they H-A-T-E Trump. He may have made Cruz safe for the party at-large, simply by doomsday contrast.

Until I have better information, I am blaming tonight’s less than stellar Trump count on that last horrible, awful, miserable debate.

Next big nail-biter is FL, where I hope to see Foam Boy rinsed down the sink for good by Trump.

Kucksick trailing the Pool Boy by only 400 votes in KY.

Shrillary with 71% in LA.

I noticed that Bernie had a pretty good day, taking KS and NE, and he will eventually win ME. Problem is, he won’t be able to break through the old black lady firewall.
