Texas Sen. Ted Cruz picked up 13 delegates during the Colorado state convention of Saturday, the AP reports.

Cruz and his main rival, current GOP front-runner Donald Trump are engaged in a bitter battle for delegates in the lead-up to what many believe will be the first contested convention in decades.
