Ted Cruz Drops Out of Presidential Race After Loss to Donald Trump
“I’ve said that 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 said that night (via Washington Post). “We gave it everything we’ve got. But the voters chose another path. And so with a heavy heart – but with boundless optimism, for the long-term future of our nation – we are suspending our campaign.”
Soon after, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus stated on Twitter that Trump will now be the presumptive GOP nominee.
