Washington - Donald Trump has posted a big win in the GOP caucus on the Northern Mariana Islands.

The party says the billionaire businessman won almost 73% of the vote in Tuesday's caucus. He will get all nine delegates from the US territory.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz came in second with 24% of the vote, while Ohio Governor John Kasich and Florida Senator Marco Rubio finished a distant third and fourth, respectively.

Both the Republican and Democratic parties hold nominating contests in US territories. The residents, however, cannot vote in the general election. The party said a total of 471 people voted.

Trump leads the race for delegates with 469. Cruz has 370, Rubio has 163, and Kasich has 63.

It takes 1 237 delegates to win the GOP nomination.
