Yesterday, Cruz said of Trump, “This man is lying to you and he’s taking advantage of you.” Trump said on Cruz, “You’ll find out tomorrow. Indiana doesn’t want you.”
So today, on May 3-d, 2016, Indiana have spoken. Ted Cruz announced he is off the race.
Ted Cruz was the main rival for billionaire Donald Trump. He regularly was taken the second place in the Republican primaries. With the Cruz retreat, odds Trump will receive a nomination for the presidency from the Republicans became almost outright.
Last week, Trump won in all five Northeastern states holding primaries or caucuses, and then said he was confident to receive a nomination way before the congress, scheduled for July.
“I said I would continue on as long as there is a viable path to victory. Tonight, I’m sorry to say, it appears that path has been foreclosed,” Cruz told a small group of supporters here Tuesday night. “Together we left it all on the field in Indiana. We gave it everything we got, but the voters chose another path.”
Cruz also said he would “continue to fight for liberty,” but did not address whether he would support Trump as the nominee.
Unfortunately, the election business is “business as usual.” No participants can stay away from punching each other in the face. Buddying up to Trump in the beginning and declaring, “I like Donald Trump,” in his last day of campaigning, Cruz dropped on Trump few bombs, calling the businessman a “pathological liar” and a “narcissist” who was proud of being a “serial philanderer.”
Now, let’s wait a bit for Cruz coming to support Trump as Carson and Rubio already did.
