th "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. indiana in, this has been decisive in the republican to the race to the dodge nation. >> campaign 2016 update, it appears no one can stop donald caump on his march toward the republican nomination. cbs news projects trump has won the indiana primary tonight and at least 30 of the 57 delegates in state. ted cruz was second, john kasich a distant third. on the democratic side it is still too early to project the race between hillary clinton and nernie sanders. john dickerson, your thoughts? >> reporter: downtown, a, he is a novice and looks like he is on his way to the nomination
5:31 pm
after beating professionals, bernie sanders gave a speech tonight in which he went through all of the differences with hillary clinton, much different than last week. >> most of our stations will be ngaving us for regular programming, but for some, the cbs evening news will continue right now from new york. >> and continuing our coverage now, major garrett is with the republicans. major. >> reporter: scott, here at trump headquarters all eyes are on ted cruz. i have worked with senior cruz advisors, the presidential race headquarters live in indianapolis, indiana. >> tha teenage immigrant washing dishes could never have believed it and yet that is exactly what happened only in america. [ applause ]
5:32 pm
>> in recent months, a lot of people have been talking about what happened 40 years ago at the republican convention in kansas city. our party's last contested convention. when i look back at that convention in missouri, i think of the speech that ronald reagan gave to our party. he spoke not of the next four years. he saw not the close horizons that of interest to those who seek to build their own fortunes in the short-term, but, instead, he looked to the distant times that concern the men and women whose purpose it is to secure the blessings of liberty to their posterity. ronald reagan spoke of the next 100 years and of the generations of americans who would come to know whether our nation had escaped the byes essential threat of nuclear war, who would know whether our party had succeeded in its fight against
5:33 pm
the erosion of constitutional freedoms that only grow and multiply under rule of the democratic party. ronald reagan spoke of the purpose that defined our party then and that must unite and drive our party now. [ applause ] >> >> the .. republican party of ronald reagan and of george herbert walker bush ensured that thousands of nuclear missiles that the soviet union and the united states had targeted each other were never fired, and that soviet communism was confined to the ash heap of history. >> they fought hard so that our american freedoms were not lost to any foreign foe nor
5:34 pm
sacrificed in pursuit of any domestic agenda of the democratic party. >> that our -- >> scott, ted cruz is taking a while to get to the announcement but he will drop out of the presidential campaign tonight after losing decisively the indiana primary that he described to everyone within his campaign inner circle knew was his last stand. there is no credible path for ted cruz to deny donald trump the nomination. he would automatic automatically eliminate and the expected loss to come on the contest june 7th, there is simply no longer a credible means by which ted cruz can argue he was an acceptable alternative to donald trump and he and his campaign forces could stop donald trump and deny him the first ballot nomination so
5:35 pm
this his cruz's exit to the presidential stage and hopes he can stop his march to the nomination. >> pelley: major garrett breaking the news tonight that ted cruz, the junior senator from texas will be dropping out of the presidential race. this was wrapping up, to a large extent, last tuesday when cruz came in third out of five states that were voting then. john dickerson, our cbs news political director and the anchor of face nation is with us. john, how does this change the landscape? >> well, it is over, donald trump is the republican nominee. i mean, he doesn't have the actual majority of delegates but it is now just against john kasich, and donald trump is rolling on. it is amazing, after a battle 11 months ago announcing his candidacy as a political novice he has now bested more than a dozen political professionals, governors, veteran senators, beat them all, and now he will
5:36 pm
undoubtedly turn more of his attention to hillary clinton, who he assumes will be the democratic nominee. >> pelley: well, donald trump needs 1237 delegates, when is he going to have them? >> reporter: well, probably still by california he will get them, but he could get them before, but more, more to the point, really for him and for the party is that he -- there is no way to stop him. the efforts that were tried this week in indiana failed. john kasich is just too far behind and is, has not shown an ability to win in other states and so now you will see a lot of republicans coming to terms with the fact that donald trump is going to be their nominee. >> pelley: governor john kasich having won only his home state of ohio and california is on june the 7th, so thi this ist going to wrap up until next month? >> reporter: well, that's right. we will have to look at what delegates trump gets from indiana. there are also those unpledged
5:37 pm
delegates in pennsylvania which will now probably all go to trump, so you can -- we will have to do the math and see if he can get it before california, but it may not wrap up officially, but it is wrapped up quite a lot tonight with majors reporting ted cruz is dropping out of the race or suspending. >> pelley: so we had a lot of fun talking about the prospect of a contested convention but it does not appear that that is going to be the case this year. we are with going to go back to ted cruz now as he is continuing his speech. this is live coverage of cruz and we understand he will be dropping out of the republican race tonight. >> many of those volunteers, many of those contributions, you never forget. just a few days ago, two young kids, ages 4 and 6, handed me two envelopes full of change.

5:43 pm
running for the nomination, but of course kasich is not a factor, having only won his home state. that essentially means that donald trump is going to be the republican nominee. it is all over but the shouting and the final votes are going to be counted june the 7th in california. we are going to have more coverage of the campaign and the democrats who are still too close to call in indiana, on the cbs evening news. i've been on my feel all day.
