At a campaign rally in Indiana after the state’s primary results handed Trump a massive victory, Sen. Ted Cruz announced that he is dropping out of the race.
Kasich didn’t hold a press conference, but did issue this statement on Facebook:
“Our strategy has been and continues to be one that involves winning the nomination at an open convention. The comments from Trump, on the verge of winning in Indiana, heighten the differences between Governor Kasich and his positive, inclusive approach and the disrespectful ramblings from Donald Trump.”
There is no way Kasich sees a second ballot at the convention now that Cruz has dropped out. We expect pouty-faced Kasich resignation any minute now.
