Texas Sen. Ted Cruz picked up a big at the Wisconsin primary on Tuesday, putting even more pressure on the current Republican front runner Donald Trump.

Wisconsin results

Cruz was expected to walk out the winner in the Badger State, but his victory Tuesday night was by an even larger margin than many predicted. With the projections in, Cruz won with a double digit lead, 50.7 percent, to Trump's 32.8 percent. After the Texas senator gave a victory speech in Wisconsin, the Trump campaign released a statement and the billionaire real estate mogul was not a happy camper, as reported by Business Insider on April 5.

"Ted Cruz is worse than a puppet, he is a Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination," Trump said in a statement released following the release of the Wisconsin primary results. "Not only was he propelled by the anti-Trump Super PAC’s spending countless millions of dollars on false advertising against Mr. Trump, but he was coordinating `with his own Super PAC’s (which is illegal) who totally control him," the statement continued.

The campaign stressed recent polls that show Trump in better shape in hypothetical matchups against Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, despite evidence contradicting their claims.

In closing, the Trump campaign predicted that he is the only candidate that could "Make America Great Again."

Trump vs Cruz

Over the last month, the feud between the former host of "The Apprentice" and the Tea Party favorite from the Lone Star State has reached a new low, even for American politics. Trump responded to an ad put out by an anti-Trump super PAC that used a nude photo of his wife, Melania, from a cover shoot she did with G.Q.

Magazine. Despite Cruz denying any knowledge of the ad, Trump threatened to "spill the beans" to Cruz's wife Heidi. Since then, Cruz has had to deal with allegations of an affair with at least five women, as originally reported by the National Enquirer. With the Republican National Convention less than four months away, Trump is still considered the favorite to become the GOP nominee.
