SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah didn’t just bet on the underdogs, it was a clean sweep through every corner of the state.

Looking at county-by-county caucus voting, Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders won their respective caucuses in every single county in Utah.

The closest contest for Cruz was in Daggett County. The Texas senator won 36 votes to Donald Trump’s 33 and John Kasich’s 25.

Daggett County, located in the northeastern corner of the state, has the population of a medium-sized high school.

For Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the closest scrape was Millard County, where he received 11 votes from the Democrats, while Hillary Clinton took in nine votes.

Rich, Beaver and Piute Counties did not organize caucuses.
