After Donald Trump became the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee and Ted Cruz dropped out of the presidential race, Ohio Gov. John Kasich announced plans to suspend his campaign for the White House on Wednesday, reports Politico:
[Kasich] had long ago been mathematically eliminated from clinching the GOP nomination outright but had hoped to emerge as a consensus candidate at a contested convention.
Ultimately, Kasich outlasted nearly all of his rivals but can claim to have beaten few of them. He won only one contest — his home state of Ohio — during the primary season, and his final tally of 153 delegates puts him fourth in the race behind Marco Rubio, who dropped out in mid-March.
Kasich had said Tuesday night that he would keep fighting, but after Cruz suspended his campaign and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus declared Trump the presumptive nominee, Kasich apparently decided to end his bid.
Kasich’s campaign has scheduled a news conference at 5 p.m. EST in Columbus, Ohio.
