BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) — Sen. Ted Cruz scored a hard-fought upset win over businessman Donald Trump in the Iowa Republican caucuses Monday night, while former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders were locked in a virtual tie on the Democratic side with most of the votes counted.

Cruz (Tex.) made good on his bet that a methodical campaign organization would eclipse Trump’s media dominance in the first test of GOP voters. With 99 percent of the precincts reporting, Cruz was besting his rival by more than 5,100 votes, with fellow senator Marco Rubio of Florida a close third.

Cruz appeared to capitalize on deep support from religious and social conservatives and showed that old-fashioned retail politicking could overcome Trump’s massive political rallies in the Hawkeye State.
