Cruz Dismisses Kasich as He Goes All In in IN

Ted Cruz made it clear Sun that he'south banking on IN to deliver him a huge win, telling supporters it'south his "battleground state" — even though the bigger PA primary comes first.

Cruz, a U. S. senator from Texas, insisted at an appearance in Terre Haute that the Republican campaign has arrive down to him and Donald Trump — even though OH Gov. John Kasich'south campaign said latest week that it's already locked down the support of a majority of Indiana's fifty-seven delegates to the Republican National Convention.

"There are two people and only two people that have any plausible path whatsoever to winning the Republican nomination — me and Donald Trump," Cruz said.

When a man in the crowd yelled out, "John Kasich!" Cruz responded, "As I said, 'plausible path.'"

Max Ketcham III, a learner at IN State Univ in Terre Haute, told NBC News that likes Kasich because of his resonance with "Hoosier hospitality." Others in the state have compared Kasich to Mitch Daniels, an admired former governor.

Indiana'south primary isn't until May three — a week after the primary Tuesday in Pennsylvania, where Trump has a powerful lead in the polls.

But Cruz has gone all in on Indiana, where at minimum one recent poll has him within single digits of Trump. Cruz is making an 11-day barnstorming tour of the state, and the campaign has budgeted what executive called a "significant" quantity of money.

The strategy mirrors the operation the Cruz campaign set up in Wisconsin, where Cruz ultimately won huge on April five. The campaign has even established "Camp Cruz," where volunteers can live for free just exterior of Indianapolis.

Gene Griffin, a longtime Terre Haute resident who supports Cruz, acknowledged that Trump is favored in the eighth Congressional District, saying: "You have a lot of folks who he'south speaking to who are ill and tired of jabs. I don't think we've sufficient research and inventory to create an intelligent decision. So we're going to vote what feels and sounds good."

Karen Wilson, who said she'south likely to vote for Trump, called Terre Haute a "Reagan Democrat" town — residence to many union workers but also predominantly anti-abortion. The city has been lost lots of union jobs.

Cruz made an explicit appeal Sun to Reagan Democrats, telling supporters that Ronald Reagan "understood that when you slice taxes and you lift the burden on tiny businesses, then you look millions and millions of new jobs."

"I intend to chase the path blazed by Ronald Reagan and JFK and do the exact same thing," he said.

Cruz got some excellent news Sun from Maine, where nineteen of the twenty delegates he'south backing were selected to attend the national conference in July.

Cruz won Maine'south caucuses in March, securing twelve delegates to nine for Trump and two for Kasich. Those delegates are bound to reflect the meeting vote at the convention — but only on the first ballot. Sunday'south allocation means that if the conference goes to multiple ballots, at least nineteen of the twenty-three state'south delegates will be Cruz supporters.
