Ted Cruz Suspends His Campaign After Donald Trump’s Double Digit MASSACRE In Indiana (VIDEO)

Texas Senator Ted Cruz announced on Tuesday that he has officially suspended his bid for the Republican presidential nomination after exit polls showed losing Indiana to Donald Trump by almost 20 points.

Before the announcement, Trump trolled Cruz on Twitter.

This story originally broke after Patrick Svitek with the Texas Tribute tweeted this:

Cruz’s vice presidential running mate Carly Fiorina fought back tears as she introduced the Texas senator.

Cruz gave a long winding speech about America and the “conservative movement.” He alluded to a possible 2020 run when he mentioned Ronald Reagan’s concession speech at a contested Republican convention in 1976. Reagan went on to win the nomination and the presidency in 1980.

Cruz then spoke the words that seemed to shock his Indiana supporters:

From the beginning I’ve said that I would continue on as long as there was a viable path to victory. Tonight, I’m sorry to say, it appears that path has been foreclosed,” Cruz said during a Tuesday night speech. “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.

Cruz’s exit calls into question whether or not Ohio Governor John Kasich will follow suit or continue to fight for a contested convention. Kasich did send out this tweet following Cruz’s announcement.

The main question now is how Trump intends to “unite” a clearly fractured Republican party who South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said is in the middle of a “Civil War.”

Here’s the video of Cruz suspending his campaign.
