Politics: Indiana Primary

The election is winding down but the holdouts still had to finally drop out and for one party Indiana was the state to decide it. Ted Cruz dropped out of the race tonight. He'd chosen Carly Fiorina as his running mate but that was not enough to win over the voters of Indiana. Donald Trump is now the presumptive nominee of the Republican party though John Kasich has yet to concede his minuscule amount of delegates. This means that the remaining votes in the states that have yet to vote for the Republicans won't matter much even though several large states still haven't voted including California.

On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders pulls out a victory over Hillary Clinton to keep his campaign going for the time being. It would be interesting to see the Democrats have a contested convention but I think they'l unite around Clinton to defeat Trump. Sanders is still holding out hope for California and other western states to gain more delegates and earn more support for altering his platform.

The race will go on and even swing by my home state of Kentucky, at least for the Democrat, the Republicans in this state have already chosen Donald Trump. There won't be much more excitement now, Kasich may drop out at some point and then Sanders will have to finally concede his campaign eventually. The real thing to watch next is the rhetoric between Trump and Clinton because that will heat up in the coming months as they move closer to facing each other in the general election. Clinton will be face attacks against Trump and Sanders so she'll have her work cut out for her to stay positive and move forward. America is one step closer to choosing its new leader!
