this is the bay area's news station. at 11:00, the presidential primary finally making its way here to california in a big way. the three republican candidates for president are now making their pitch to local republicans in burlingame. good evening, everyone, i'm vicki liviakis. from the newsroom, we are joined with more on the convention and the turmoil surrounding this weekend. >> california matters, that was the theme we heard from candidates over the past two days. in fact, this is the first time in decades the republican primary could stretch until
june. there was calm outside the california republican convention today, stark contrast against yesterday's protests where at least five people were arrested as they tried to disrupt donald trump. they succeeded in blocking the entrance forcing the front run tore climb over a guardrail and use a back entrance at the high at. trump tweeted today, the protesters in california were thugs and criminals. many are professionals. they should be dealt with strongly by law enforcement. >> good bless the great state of california. reporter: today it was senator ted cruz's turn to make his case to republican voters. >> you need someone with good judgment that is sober and stable and levelheaded and not likely to make ration hotheaded decisions, not likely to explode at the latest twitter storm. reporter: he received a surprise endorsement from former republican governor pete wilson and positive reviews from voters at the convention. >> ted cruz what amazing. >> i think a lot of things he
said about our nation are true. we've gotten ourselves in a negative situation. >> he's going to do what he says he's going to do. he's been conservative and consistent. reporter: cruz and his other rival john kasich have an uphill battle if they hope to keep trump from getting the nomination before the national convention. right now donald trump has nearly 1,000 delegates. he needs about 250 more to clinch the nomination. otherwise, he will face a brokered convention. trump won 6 out of 7 primaries in april, all candidates now look ahead to indiana where 57 delegates are up for grabs. california has one of the last primaries on june 7th. it has 172 delegates up for grabs. that's the most out of any state in the republican primary, and plenty to turn the tables at the last minute. reporting from the newsroom tonight, kron 4 news.
