Cruz and Kasich Team Up Against Trump

Cruz and Kasich

Donald Trump has forced 14 of the 16 other candidates for the GOP nomination for president to quit the race, and now he has made the last two join together to stop him.

Late Sunday night, after the Fox News Town Hall, John Kasich and Ted Cruz each sent a message through their campaign that they were going to team up and stop Trump.

Jeff Roe, Ted Cruz’s campaign manager said, “Having Donald Trump at the top of the ticket in November would be a sure disaster for Republicans. To ensure that we nominate a Republican who can unify the Republican Party and win in November, our campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico, and we would hope that allies of both campaigns would follow our lead.”

Just week Ted Cruz said his team didn’t need to team up with anyone and that he was going to win the nomination. Then New York happened, and things are changing.

The two remaining GOP candidates teaming up mark a big change in this election: either they really think they can win or they are just that desperate to stop Trump. The Donald thinks he knows the answer.

This does look like desperation, but why now? Why are they teaming up now to beat Trump? The Donald has an answer for that too.

The two teaming up might be too little, too late. Donald Trump won big in New York and is leading the upcoming primaries and has a path to get the nomination on the first vote at the convention.

The possibility for Ted Cruz or John Kasich winning the nomination is looking less and less realistic by the day. They feel they have to win in order to beat Hillary Clinton in the fall and they may be right.

Cruz and Kasich beat Hillary in head to head polls right now, but Trump loses. With that being said, November is over six months away and if you remember six months ago, nobody thought that Trump would be here now.

No matter what happens, this is going to continue being an historic and somewhat crazy election and we have not seen the end of the fireworks yet. They are just getting lit.

Read the statements from the candidates and let us know what you think in the comments. Is this a good thing for Trump or will Kasich and Cruz be able to do what 14 other candidates couldn’t do?

The two candidates statements are below.

Here is the statement put out by Ted Cruz’s campaign.

“Having Donald Trump at the top of the ticket in November would be a sure disaster for Republicans. Not only would Trump get blown out by Clinton or Sanders, but having him as our nominee would set the party back a generation. To ensure that we nominate a Republican who can unify the Republican Party and win in November, our campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico, and we would hope that allies of both campaigns would follow our lead. In other states holding their elections for the remainder of the primary season, our campaign will continue to compete vigorously to win.”
