Well, so much for suspense. The networks called Indiana for Donald Trump about five seconds after the polls closed, and within two hours Ted Cruz announced he was suspending his campaign. Trump is winning a majority of the vote and will likely win all 57 delegates.
Even if a few delegates stray back across the line, this win clinched the nomination for Trump. He will now have well over 1,000 bound delegates, which is less than 200 from what he needs to make it a lock. And that’s without the unbound delegates he definitely has in Pennsylvania and is sure to win in West Virginia on May 10; or the share of proportionally allocated delegates he’s going to win in Oregon on May 17, in Washington on May 24, and in New Mexico on June 7; or the 51 winner-take-all delegates long conceded to him in New Jersey on June 7; or the many delegates he will win in winner-take-most California on June 7. So Cruz’s surrender is entirely rational. And, beginning tonight, we will find out if a shocked Republican Party puts up any further resistance to its new barbarian master.

Um, Jim Rob – do you really think it’s a good idea to start another membership purge in the middle of a Freepathon?
Of course, you’re ALWAYS in the middle of a Freepathon….
That’s all for this week, race fans. Battling a nasty throat and bronchial infection, and stamina is near zero. Back next week with more.
