Hoosier fallout: Cruz bows out of race, Trump presumptive GOP nominee

Bridge over White River, Indianapolis
Ladies and gentlemen the next Republican nominee for president is Donald J. Trump of New York.

From AP:
BREAKING: Ted Cruz drops his White House bid after a stinging loss in the Indiana.

Previously: INDIANAPOLIS — After a decisive win in Wisconsin, Ted Cruz triumphantly declared that his political fortunes were shifting: “Tonight is a turning point,” the Texas senator boomed at a victory rally in Milwaukee.

But just a month later, his quest to stop Donald Trump has all but collapsed.

Cruz has had perhaps worst stretch of his campaign, losing seven consecutive primaries, culminating with Tuesday's defeat in Indiana that puts Trump within striking distance of the Republican presidential nomination.
This will be the wildest presidential race since the "Revolution of 1800."
