HONOLULU (AP) — Donald Trump easily won in the Hawaii Republican caucuses Tuesday.

Trump won the state with 42 percent of the vote. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was second with 33 percent. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio came in third with 13 percent of the vote, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich came in fourth with 11 percent.

There are just over 2,000 provisional votes that have to be counted yet this week. The Hawaii Republican Party will allocate delegates after that count is completed.
