Donald Trump‘s revamped campaign team faces its latest test in Wyoming on Saturday—and they appear set to fail it. The state will select 14 delegates at its convention, and by focusing on the months-long process, Ted Cruz appears set for another sweeping win. It would be the latest delegate setback to Trump, who faces long odds to reach 1,237 delegates by the convention, and must also shore up support among delegates for potential subsequent ballots. Meanwhile, many top Republicans are turning away from the presidential race—unhappy with their remaining choices or chances—to focus on down-ballot House and Senate campaigns. In hopes of preventing a wave, GOP donors and operatives are preparing to shore up support for vulnerable incumbents, potentially at the expense of the party’s presidential nominee.

The shift, which comes amid renewed appreciation for Alexander Hamilton, has many women, including the girl who brought the issue to the president’s desk, unsatisfied.
