Oregon Right to Life endorsed Ted Cruz this week: “His record on pro-life issues is impeccable,” said Gayle Atteberry in announcing the endorsement.

There has been no recent polling in Oregon, but the one available poll from a year ago (before Donald Trump entered the race) had Mike Huckabee leading with 21 percent and Cruz in second with 16 percent.

Mormons were 5 percent of the population in 2008, making them likely a larger share of the GOP electorate — not good for Trump.

The East Coast GOP appears headed for a big Trump endorsement. Will the West Coast go for Cruz?
