i have always, always gotten behind whoever won. this is the first time ever, i will not be able to do that now. >> this morning, cruz will be waking up at home in houston, texas. not before accidentally elbowing his wife while suspending his campaign. he attacked donald trump, but trump quickly reversed his tone after his win, thanking cruz for a well-fought contest. >> just so understand, ted cruz, i don't know if he likes me or he doesn't like me, but he is one hell of a competitor. he is a tough, smart guy. he has an amazing future. he has got an amazing future. so i want to congratulate ted. >> the rnc chairman, reince priebus took to twitter. john kasich's campaign manager
responded to that posting on twitter, quote, until someone has 1,237 bound delegates, there is no presumptive nominee. california, here we come. only kasich remains in the fight, only winning ohio, and under trump's belt, forcing a contested convention remain limited. issuing this statement. obviously the victory makes the road ahead more challenging. we'll continue to seek opportunities to oppose his nomination and draw a clear line between him and the values of the conservative cause. front pages across the country also mourning indiana's results. the new york daily news, an he will -- elephant in a coffin. john mccain said he would advise the republican nominee on foreign policy, if asked. mississippi governor and cruz backer, fill bryant said he
would support trump calling for party unity. republican fight for the nomination is all but sealed. remarkably, it is the democratic contest still in flux. bernie sanders pulled off an up set in indiana, beating hillary clinton by single digits, after clinton largely abandoned the state last week. 45 new delegates to clinton's 38. while sanders gives his campaign new life, clinton is less than 200 delegates from clinching the democratic nomination. the clinton camp remains fixed on the general election, with the chair put og ut this statement. throughout this campaign, donald trump has demonstrated that he is too divisive to lead our nation. so much at stake, donald trump is too big ever a risk. hillary clinton has proven she has the strength to keep us safe in an uncertain world and a lifetime record of breaking down the barriers, economic and social that hold working families back. the campaign is fundraising off

dynamic here. they just confirmed what we've seen is trump's republican party now. >> and you talk about confirmation, because we thought this could be ted cruz's last stand, but what a surprise. did you expect him to actually concede and step out of the race? >> no, i don't think many people thought that. listening to the boos and no, no, no. you know, we didn't expect it, because ted cruz said he would take it all the way to the convention. he believes in his view of america. he would push it as far as it went. but it turned out that train stopped last night. >> yeah, and then rather quickly. but cruz's supporters, we've heard from a few of the people on his team, saying, no, we don't know what we're going to do now. do you think that they're going to stick with the republican party? >> no, listen, we know that most republicans will end up supporting the nominee, but boy, ted cruz, some of the hard cut folks will have a tough time explaining some of the things they said. it was 12 hours ago that he was
describing donald trump as a pathological liar, and that was one of the nicer things he said. >> yeah, there has been a lot of things they're not going to be able to take back. >> how do you swallow that? i don't know. >> i don't know, we'll see what today brings, right? let's talk about bernie sanders now. sweeping indiana. what will this do to the hillary clinton move snmt. >> it's a little bump in the road. the numbers are very much in her favor. almost as much as in the case of donald trump. but this was not part of the narrative that the hillary people were looking for. they wanted a nice, smooth glide to california and then on to philadelphia. >> yeah, but interesting enough, we might have a cruz -- sorry. a trump/clinton stand off, which is what people were expected. >> well, that's true. but you know what, we have never before had two less popular candidate force the were he is density of the united states. strange place to be, isn't it? >> very much so. ellis, thank you so much. >> great to see you.
