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.

The basic narrative of the fight for the Republican presidential nomination continued Tuesday: Donald Trump won the most delegates, Ted Cruz won a big state, and John Kasich was on the outside looking in.

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

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.
