Trump and Sanders win Indiana; Cruz suspends campaign



INDIANAPOLIS – Tuesday night, Republican voters in Indiana showed overwhelming support for businessman Donald Trump, bestowing 51 delegates on the candidate, leaving the final two candidates Ted Cruz and John Kasich with no additional delegates.

Cruz announced the suspension of his campaign and Kasich announced he would continue in the race until someone accumulated the 1237 delegates needed to win the delegates' first floor vote at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this summer.

Democrat Bernie Sanders beat his rival Hillary Clinton in Indiana, adding to his delegate count.

The numbers, according to Associated Press, indicate that a little over one million cast Republican votes in Indiana Tuesday, while about 600,000 cast votes in the Democrat presidential primary.

  1. What a remarkable testimony to the tin ears of the GOP establishment that a complete outsider, with no political experience, could come in and easily wrest away their party’s Presidential nomination!
    They had absolutely no concern for or understanding of the simmering public rage over uncontrolled immigration, runaway political correctness or anti-American foreign trade deals.
    There must be weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth in the Chamber of Commerce HQ tonight. And they will be in complete convulsions come Trump’s victory in November.

  2. The Republican Establishment people live in an isolated world of their own making.
    They only talk to each other, they don’t have our cares and problems, don’t know of our cares and problems, and DON’T WANT TO KNOW of our cares and problems.
    This was the status of government in France before 1789, which triggered the French Revolution. We are now seeing a type of “revolution” here, now, in our own Party, due to the same attitudes.
