Primary breakdown for Trump, rest of GOP field

As expected, Donald Trump won huge majorities in all 10 congressional districts in the Washington presidential primary. But the runner up changed from district to district.

Below is the congressional district breakdown of votes as of Wednesday evening, courtesy of the Secretary of State's elections division.

It shows that U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas doing best in Eastern Washington's 5th Congressional District. Ohio Gov. John Kasich does better in some Pugetopolis districts. And Dr. Ben Carson does about the same in all 10 districts.

No one but Trump is doing well enough to qualify for delegates to the national convention.
