Gov. John Kasich is out of the Republican contest, having put out word that he is suspending his campaign.
Now, as we all know, Kasich was out of the election soon after New Hampshire, but continued his ego trip for months afterward. Nevertheless, his campaign put out word today that he is formally ending his long-dead quest to be president.
That leaves only Donald Trump as the last man standing and the presumptive nominee, I presume. Unless Jim Gilmore gets back in, which I doubt.
You remember Jim Gilmore, right?
Gosh, of all those people onstage during those GOP debates, now there is only one.
I had wondered if maybe Ted Cruz had some kind of weird plan to let Kasich go one on one with Donald Trump and do well enough to deny him the 1,237. But I checked, and Kasich’s polls were terrible in all the remaining states I saw, so this was out of the question.
