HONOLULU (AP) - Donald Trump has won the lion's share of Hawaii's Republican delegates.

The Hawaii Republican Party announced the delegate allocation Friday based on the percentage of votes each candidate received in Tuesday's caucuses.

Trump handily won the vote and received 11 of the state's 19 delegates. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas came in second, and received seven delegates. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio got one delegate.

Hawaii will send 19 delegates to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this summer to select the party's presidential nominee.

The Hawaii Republican presidential caucus Tuesday drew 15,672 voters. That surpasses 2012, when 10,228 GOP voters caucused.

State GOP chairman Fritz Rohlfing says the turnout shows Americans want to head in a new direction.
