Cruz was the only candidate to address the convention crowd in Casper on Saturday, promising to end what he called President Barack Obama’s “war on coal” if he’s elected. Cruz ran a well-organized campaign in the state.

Trump still leads the overall delegate race. The AP delegate count: Trump 744; Cruz 559; and Kasich 144. Needed to win: 1,237.

Cruz released the following statement after the win:

“We had a tremendous show of grassroots support that resulted in a critical victory at today’s Wyoming Republican Convention. This victory continues a momentum shift that started in Utah and carried through Wisconsin, North Dakota and Colorado. Grassroots are rising up. Republicans overwhelmingly elected delegates who will support us at the national convention and nominate us to take on Hillary Clinton. This is how elections are won in America. This is another step in our drive to win a majority of Republicans to be the nominee.”
