Indiana Primary Results

Democrat Bernie Sanders upset Hillary Clinton and won the Indiana Primary on Tuesday, May 3, 2016.  The Sanders victory keeps his campaign alive for another round of state primaries and a slim possibility of a contested Democratic Party Convention in July –all depending on the delegate count and super delegates Sanders wins over.

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump also won the Indiana Primary yesterday.  With his last 2 challengers gone, Trump’s path to the GOP’s presidential nomination is clear.  Ted Cruz suspended his race after a second place finish in the crucial Indiana primary and losing to Trump in the 5 Super Tuesday NE primaries last week. Cruz also teamed up with Carly Fiorina before the Indiana Primary.

The Associated Press and other news organizations report John Kasich will drop out. Kaisich tweeted a campaign video on “May the 4th be with you” and Star Wars Day today.
