Rubio wins GOP Puerto Rico presidential primary

- 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.
 
Based on updated results, Trump and John Kasich also picked up delegates in Vermont, which held its primary Tuesday.
 
In the overall race for delegates, Trump has 384 and Cruz has 300. Rubio has 151 delegates and Kasich has 37.
 
It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination for president.
 
Rubio also won Minnesota.
