Ted Cruz Drops Out of Presidential Race: 'The Voters Chose Another Path'
Ted Cruz dropped out of the presidential race tonight after an overwhelming loss to Donald Trump in the Indiana primary, saying that his path to victory had been "foreclosed."
Cruz made the announcement from his campaign headquarters in Indianapolis.
"From the beginning, I've said that I would continue on as long as there was a viable path to victory. Tonight, I'm sorry to say it appears that path has been foreclosed."
Cruz said that his campaign gave it their best effort in Indiana, "but the voters chose another path."
"And so, with a heavy heart, but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation, we are suspending our campaign. But hear me now, I am not suspending our fight for liberty. I am not suspending our fight to defend the Constitution, to defend the Judeo-Christian values that built America. Our movement will continue. And I give you my word that I will continue this fight with all of my strength and all of my ability."
