After a big win in the Indiana primary on Tuesday, the race to the GOP nomination is all but sealed for Donald Trump. Ted Cruz suspended his campaign yesterday saying his campaign, “left it all on the field in Indiana we gave it everything we’ve got, but the voters chose another path.”
It was reported on Wednesday morning that John Kasich would follow suit and suspend his campaign.
Now that Senator Ted Cruz and Governor John Kasich are both out of the race, presidential hopeful Donald Trump is the last Republican standing. So now that Senator Ted Cruz and Governor John Kasich are both out of the race, how is the Republican party going to respond to Donald Trump as the nominee?
Hamline Political Science Professor David Schultz says we may see, “a lot of people gradually over the next three months before the convention start to come together behind Trump because at the end of the day he has really re-defined the party and B, lots of Republicans would rather see him elected than Hillary Clinton as the president of the United States.”
Schultz says it’s also possible that more Republicans will say they, “can’t live with Donald Trump” and they may support Hillary Clinton, or they may just not vote.
Either way the possibility of a contested GOP convention in Cleveland becomes null.
