The people have spoken by their vote. Kasich and Cruz are having a complete immature Temper Tantrum over what the voters are saying: “We want Donald Trump as President.” Kasich and Cruz reply to this? “We will force you like us.”
Kasich campaign manager John Weaver acknowledged that he is basically teaming up with Cruz in order to keep Trump below 1,237 delegates. A Trump victory in the winner-take-all state of Indiana would give Trump 57 delegates. The Kasich campaign has already been working the Indiana delegates on a potential second ballot, and claims that it has locked up the support of more than half of them.
So instead of trying to actually win the primary on May 3, Team Kasich is clearing a path for Cruz to go up against Trump one-on-one.
“Our goal is to have an open convention in Cleveland, where we are confident a candidate capable of uniting the party and winning in November will emerge as the nominee,” Kasich campaign manager John Weaver said in a strategy memo Sunday night.
