In case you missed it, here’s the bottom line from elections.ap on the GOP race for the nomination:
Donald Trump is now the only Republican candidate with any chance of clinching the nomination before the convention.
Ted Cruz was mathematically eliminated Tuesday after Trump's big win in the New York primary.
Trump won at least 89 of the 95 delegates at stake. John Kasich won at least three and Cruz was in danger of being shut out.
There aren't enough delegates left in future contests for either Cruz or Kasich to reach the 1,237 delegates needed to win the GOP nomination. Their only hope is to block Trump and force a contested convention.
The AP delegate count:
Is Tea Party Patriots going to continue to endorse Ted Cruz, whose only shot at the nomination is to somehow influence the first vote at the convention, whether by dishonesty or outright theft? (I don’t think Cruz would stand a chance in a contested convention; he’d be thrown over in favor of other more “electable” candidates. Romney? Ryan? More of the same ole same ole…)
