WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The statement comes after Sen. Ted Cruz, the last major challenger to Trump, pulled out of the US presidential race after going down to a landslide defeat in the Indiana state primary on Tuesday.
“Tonight’s results are not going to alter Gov. Kasich’s campaign plans. Our strategy has been and continues to be one that involves winning the nomination at an open convention,” Weaver said, as quoted by the Politico newspaper.
In the Indiana primary Trump had over 50 percent of support, Cruz followed with some 36 percent and Kasich earned only 7.7 percent of the vote.
The 2016 US presidential election will take place in November.
