Ted Cruz to campaign in Erie_52584532-159532

The crowd gathering at Rainbow Gardens earlier this afternoon waits to hear from Republican Presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz.

Cruz took to the stage, trying to rally support among local Republican voters. At this time, polls show Donald Trump with a solid lead when it comes to the popular vote.

In Pennsylvania, popular vote isn’t what these candidates are fighting for. The delegates are vital in this race, with Trump in the lead but Cruz a close second.

The likelihood of a brokered convention is becoming more likely with each passing primary.

In Pennsylvania, Trump could win the popular vote, but 54 of the state’s 71 GOP delegates won’t be known until the convention in July.

Cruz says he is banking on a brokered convention.
