Bowing out: Cruz.

Be afraid, folks. Be very afraid.

This Writer is no fan of Ted Cruz, but his departure leaves no real opposition to Donald Trump winning the Republican Presidential nomination.

The hopeful news is that Bernie Sanders won the Democrat primary.

Ted Cruz suspended his US presidential campaign on Tuesday after a crushing defeat in Indiana’s primary, leaving the way clear for Donald Trump to become the Republican nominee.

The Texas senator was the last remaining competitor to Trump with a clear shot at the nomination. However, after staking his campaign on a win in Indiana, Cruz suffered an overwhelming loss in the Hoosier State.

In the Democratic race, Bernie Sanders pulled off a shock victory, beating Hillary Clinton by 52.5% to 47.5%, with 97.9% reporting.

“The Clinton campaign thinks this campaign is over,” he said. “They’re wrong.”
