    After Indiana: Trump celebrates; Cruz out; Sanders wins

    Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee following a decisive victory in the Indiana primary and the decision by Ted Cruz to drop out of the race. Though Trump has not formally secured the 1,237 delegates he needs to win the nomination — and likely won’t until June — there is no serious opposition left to block his path. “It is a beautiful thing to watch, and a beautiful thing to behold,” Trump said during a victory speech. “We […]

    Ted Cruz on Tuesday unloaded on Donald Trump, accusing him during a news conference of being a “pathological liar,” “utterly amoral,” “a narcissist at a level I don’t think this country’s ever seen” and “a serial philanderer.” “He is proud of being a serial philanderer … he describes his own battles with venereal diseases as his own personal Vietnam,” Cruz said, citing a decades-old Trump appearance on “The Howard Stern Show.” The Texas senator’s dramatic and deeply personal attack on […]

    Donald Trump will win Indiana primary, projection says

    Donald Trump surged to a decisive victory in the Indiana Republican primary Tuesday, CNN projects, while Ted Cruz’s last-ditch efforts to win the state faltered, leaving Trump on the cusp of the nomination.

Following his decisive wins in New York and other East Coast states, the Indiana victory could put Trump within […]
