Ted Cruz finished Colorado's delegate fight the way he started it: With overwhelming victory.
Donald Trump finished it the way he started as well: With a disorganized and frustrated campaign plagued by mistakes.
Cruz took all 13 of the delegates up for grabs on Saturday to complete a clean sweep of the state. Delegates endorsed by his campaign swept all seven Congressional District conventions held over the last week as well, which added another 21 delegates. Another three slots are reserved for state party officials.
"Today was another resounding victory for conservatives, Republicans, and Americans who care about the future of our country," the Cruz campaign said in a statement Saturday night.
Trump's aides set expectations at rock bottom heading into Saturday's contest, citing the state's unfavorable demographics and a complicated process that empowers local party activists to vote on delegates.
Supporters in Colorado nonetheless said they were frustrated with the campaign's chaotic and uncommunicative campaign, which failed to reach basic levels of competence.
"We could have had some things going, but the campaign decided to not put resources here," Becky Mizel, a former Pueblo County GOP chair and Trump delegate candidate, told NBC News.
