WASHINGTON (AP) — Ted Cruz wins the Republican presidential caucuses in Kansas and Maine.

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.

Ted Cruz won most of the delegates in the Kansas Republican caucuses, collecting at least 23. Donald Trump won at least nine delegates and Marco Rubio got at least five.

There are still three delegates to be allocated in Kansas.

There are a total of 155 delegates at stake in four states Saturday: Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana and Maine. No GOP delegates have yet been allocated in any of the other states.

In the overall race for delegates, Trump has 338 and Cruz has 254. Marco Rubio has 115 delegates and John Kasich has 25.

It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination for president.
