WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump has won the Republican presidential caucuses in Kentucky, adding to his victory earlier Saturday in Louisiana.
That’s the 12th state win for the billionaire businessman, who aimed to extend his delegate lead over Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in Saturday’s nominating contests.
Among his supporters in Kentucky was 57-year-old Karen Gallardo, a lifelong Republican who said she was proud to caucus for the real estate mogul.
She says, “It wasn’t a close call.”
She adds, “The reason I want Trump so bad is that I feel he has a vision, he knows the country. He is a successful businessman.”
