GOP frontrunner Donald Trump isn’t attending the Colorado GOP Convention this weekend, according to The Denver Post.

“He will not be attending,” said Colorado GOP communications director Kyle Kohli.

On Saturday, the Colorado Republican Party is set to pick 13 delegates who will go to the Republican National Convention. The Denver Post reports that delegate pledge-forms suggest Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) “is handily winning among the party’s activists.”

Recent reports suggest Cruz has received a higher share of favorable delegates in several states where the delegates are picked by party leaders or by activists.
