2016 US Presidential Elections Ted Cruz

Quits presidential race

4 May, 2016

In Indiana, Cruz announces he is quitting the presidential race, after losing the state’s primary to Donald Trump. Trump and John Kasich are the two remaining candidates competing for the Republican presidential nomination.

From the beginning I’ve said that I would continue on, as long as there was a viable path to victory. I’m sorry to say, it appears that path has been foreclosed. Together we left it all on the field in Indiana. We gave it everything we’ve got, but the voters chose another path. And so, with a heavy heart, but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation, we are suspending our campaign. But hear me now, I am not suspending our fight for liberty. I am not suspending our fight to defend the Constitution; to defend the Judeo-Christian values that built America. Our movement will continue, and I give you my word that I will continue this fight with all of my strength and all of my ability.
