the numbers are in for the first ever republican caucus in kentucky. donald trump took home the win but there were a few surprises. the first was just how many people actually showed up to the polls.so many that traffic was backed up for blocks.and that put a kink in the g-o-p's operation to choose a nominee. we'll have more on that in a minute. but first, as we said, donald trump took the win with ted cruz coming in second.but it was very close and well within the margin of error.trump taking 35 point nine percent to cruz' 31 point five. another surprise is how well ohio governor john kasich did yesterday.he came in 4th overall but as we dig a little deeper, in several northen kentucky counties, he beat out marco rubio to place 3rd. 9 on your side reporter rose ann argon was out all day ata watch party for bluegrass republicans as they waited for the results to come in.hey rose ann. "our votes matter and we want to see how kentucky did and

office" a night starting with anticipation. votes for kentucky at about 25% percent in-- at half past 8. "it seems like the votes for kentucky went really slow. we want to know who won kentucky --what all of our hard work went to." "there's a lot of energy for all the candidates, so we're just waiting to see who comes out for kentucky."but just before 10 it became clear -- trump leading the kentucky caucus with more than 40%-- it like it is. he's an outsider. you know cruz and rubio.. i just feel like they're really in it for themselves.""that's great. i do believe that our country is at a point where it needs to be run as a business."others believe there are better candidates(kristin turner - think he doesn't say a lot in debates. i think he would rather argue and point fingers
5:04 am
a concrete plan. i really would like cruz to win. i believe he's the true conservative candidate and i believe he stands behind his morals and beliefs" as for trump's competitive edge thus far some were shocked.(claire mcvey- lexington)"i first heard that he might run over a year and a half ago and i kind of laughed it off. and now i wish that i hadn't . i think everyone is really surprised that he's made it this far."(john vincent - caucus worker campbell county)"people are angry--people are losing their jobs, but when they do al little more research and find out where trump really stands...it just goes to show you got to look at what someone does and not what they say."many voters sticking to their core values."protect the unborn an be a constitutionalist."but in the end--leaders here say-- there's more energy now than ever.(justin vandergelas - nky president)"whether you're for donald trump or more people talking about politics in general."roe: leaders of the young republicans here tell me that their goal is to support whomever the candidate is -- and continue this momentum through november. reporting live ra 9 oys. so every county went to either ted cruz or donald trump...something wcpo-dot-com politics and government reporter amanda seitz says a lot of people saw coming.. coming..amanda seitz/wcpo.com politics and government reporter0018 i think it's no surprise we saw it shape up to be a showdown between donald trump and ted cruz. trump kind of appeals to the people that

november, he's kind of an outsider and hasn't been in government for a very long time. meanwhile, on the opposite side, ted cruz is someone who has really held the line on his conservative values which appeals to some of the evangelical voters and the tea party in kentucky. here's what the primary race looks like nationally on the republican side ... donald trump is still leading in terms of total number of delegates gained ... he has 375 to ted cruz's 291 ... but both are still a long way away from the 1 thousand 2 hundred and 37 total delegates needed to win the nomination. turning now to the democratic layout. vermont senator bernie sanders won 2 out of 3 states up for grabs yesterday.voters in nebraska and kansas broke for sanders ...while hillary clinton comes out on top in in louisiana.democratic voters in maine head to the polls today. if you're interested in taking a look at at a county by county breakdown of how things went yeserday.you can find what you're looking for on our
