Texas Senator Ted Cruz is dropping out of the Republican presidential race after suffering a humiliating defeat in the Indiana primary Tuesday.
Cruz told supporters in Indiana he was suspending his campaign, just hours after it was clear he would suffer a significant loss at the polls.
‘God bless the Hoosier state,’ Cruz said at the start of a long speech where he hailed American values.
‘We are not boastful or mean spirited. America is brave. We keep our word. And we believe in peace through strength,’ Cruz said, in remarks that echoed both his bitter fight against Donald Trump and were aimed toward whatever his future in politics holds.
