The results of the Indiana Primary took us by surprise. On the Democrat side Bernie Sanders, a socialist, beat out Hillary Clinton. Everyone thought she would take the state without any trouble. She has felt the Bern.
The Republican winner was Donald Trump. This is not really surprising as he was polling well there ahead of the primary. Ted Cruz did get nearly 40% of the popular vote after all. I guessed it would be close like that. I just wasn’t sure who would take it. But of course I wanted it to be Trump.
The surprising factor was Ted Cruz announcing the end of his presidential campaign. Up to that moment I didn’t believe he would every do such a thing. And I’m still in a bit of shock by it.
Ted Cruz, as I have stated before, is a man who seeks earthly power. He wanted to be President of the United States, more than anything. So he has either grown in wisdom or he has been offered a deal that he cannot refuse.
If he has grown in wisdom and addresses the mistakes made by himself and his campaign staff, it’s all for the better. His next step is to help unify the Republican Party. To bring an end to the #neverTrump movement and actually endorse Donald Trump for President.
If on the other hand he has been offered a deal. Then I hope it was offered by the Trump Campaign and by The Donald himself. And not some kind of 3rd party option for and by the #neverTrump crowd. All they really want is a Hillary Clinton victory to further their agenda.
Over all it was a good night. We are closer to a Republican nominee before the National Convention. And closer to having a split vote on by the progressive liberals with Bernie Sanders going strong in Indiana.
November is approaching fast and we need to be ready for it. The GOP must win the White House, keep the House of Representatives, and gain the majority of the Senate. Additionally Republicans need to win in the States as well. There is a lot of work ahead of us.
