LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Fox News projects that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz will defeat Donald Trump in Wisconsin’s Republican presidential primary.

According to Fox News exit polls and early vote returns, Cruz will win the state. The victory helps Cruz slow Trump’s momentum after a rough week on the campaign trail for the New York businessman. 

On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders was projected to defeat Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s Wisconsin Democratic presidential primary.

With polls closed in the state, Fox News exit polling shows Sanders will win the Democratic contest, making it his sixth victory of the last seven primaries and caucuses – and giving him significant momentum in advance of the New York primary in two weeks.
