NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump is now the only Republican candidate with any chance of clinching the nomination before the convention.
Ted Cruz was mathematically eliminated Tuesday after Trump’s big win in the New York primary.
Trump won at least 89 of the 95 delegates at stake. John Kasich won at least three and Cruz was in danger of being shut out.
There aren’t enough delegates left in future contests for either Cruz or Kasich to reach the 1,237 delegates needed to win the GOP nomination. Their only hope is to block Trump and force a contested convention.
It’s going to be Hillary (sorry Bernie supporters) vs. Trump in the general. This talk about a contested convention is fun to talk about when you have so many pundits who need to justify their existence but Trump is too far out ahead now.
