Following Tuesday’s Indiana primary, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz announced the suspension of his campaign.
Apparently this call was not a spur of the moment decision.
On Monday night, Cruz participated in a conference call with his advisers to discuss the path the campaign would take based on the results of Tuesday’s voting.
Two aides suggested he continue his campaign so conservative voters would have an alternative to Trump.
However, Cruz chose not to heed this advice, and according to another top aide, felt the Republican race was getting “out of hand,” and his remaining in the race may result in permanent damage to the conservative movement. He did what he believed was “best for the country,” said the aide . . .
Just before announcing the suspension of his campaign, Cruz said, “From the beginning I’ve said 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.” (Read more from “Ted Cruz’s Top Aides Explain His Decision to Suspend His Campaign” HERE)
