Cruz, Kasich team up to stop Trump

0

BRIDGEPORT, United States: Ted Cruz and John Kasich have agreed to join forces to try to deny frontrunner Donald Trump the Republican Party’s presidential nomination, their campaigns said Sunday. The sudden alliance, revealed in short statements, arose due to the pressing timing of the Republican Party’s presidential primary season. Trump, a wealthy property developer and reality television star, has pushed close to amassing the number of delegates to the party convention that would ensure he will be the Republican standard-bearer. Cruz’s campaign manager Jeff Roe said the campaign would “focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico.” Kasich’s team put out a similar statement. A dismissive Trump said on Twitter: “Wow, just announced that Lyin’ Ted and Kasich are going to collude in order to keep me from getting the Republican nomination. DESPERATION!”
