Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s big win in Utah means he will get all 40 of the state’s delegates to the Republican National Convention.

Cruz has a very limited path to clinch the nomination before the party’s convention this summer.

But if he can start winning more contests, he can stop front-runner Donald Trump from doing so.

Trump won the most delegates on Tuesday, picking up all 58 in Arizona’s Republican primary. Republicans also caucused Tuesday in American Samoa, where Trump and Cruz each picked up a delegate.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich was shut out for the night, leaving him with fewer delegates than Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who quit the race last week.
