Cruz and Kasich are teaming up to stop Trump


25983300361_a6510165d2_bRepublican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and John Kasich have both been mathematically eliminated from winning the party nomination prior to the Republican National Convention in July. However, they’re not out of the running just yet — and they’ve created a strategic alliance to to deny frontrunner Donald Trump the requisite 1,237 delegates by dividing and conquering the remaining primary states:

Within minutes of each other, the pair issued statements late Sunday saying they will divide their efforts in upcoming contests with Cruz focusing on Indiana and Kasich devoting his efforts to Oregon and New Mexico. The strategy — something the two campaigns have been working on for weeks — is aimed at blocking Trump from gaining the 1,237 delegates necessary to claim to GOP nomination this summer.

Despite the agreement, however, Kasich still wants Indiana supporters to vote for him.”I’m not campaigning in Indiana and [Cruz is] not campaigning in these other states, that’s all. It’s not a big deal,” he told reporters.

Both camps released press releases confirming the strategy. Read them both below.

Interestingly, it seems that Mitt Romney may have played a hand in negotiating the pact.

Meanwhile, Trump tweeted that Cruz’s and Kasich’s plan was born out of “DESPERATION.”

    Cruz and Kasich because of their own greed will b destroying the Republican party, if they try to block Trump. The will of the voters will not allow that. And if Cruz and Kasich succeed, that’s the end of the GOP, the victory of Hillary is in the basket. A party divided will not win.
    Cruz and Kasich are greedy of power, they destroy the country and the party for their own personal ambitions. I don’t even trust them.
