Kasich to quit presidential race

By George Miller

In another dramatic turn of events in the campaign,it appears that John Kasich will drop out of the GOP race for the presidential nomination. So far, he has won only his home state and is in a very distant and weak third place behind Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. The latter suspended his campaign last night after seeing early return in the Indiana primary voting. Trump’s commanding wins in five NortyEast states and in the Indiana primary, prompted the decision. There is no path for Kasich to win the delegate race, except for a brokered, contested convention, which is looking far less likely now.

This leaves Donald Trump as the only major Republican candidate still in the running. But, don’t despair, there are a total of 39 presidential candidates on the Ventura County ballot this year!  But, in California, you have to be registered in the party of  the candidate you want to vote for.

The Democrats are down to just Clinton as the presumptive nominee, with only Bernie Sanders in the running and far behind. Only a major Hillary disaster, such as an indictment, “smoking gun,” or major health crisis, would prevent her nomination at this point. 

The Ohio governor will make the announcement about his campaign at 5 p.m. on Wednesday in Columbus, Ohio, his campaign said. Kasich abruptly canceled a news conference planned for Wednesday morning outside Washington, D.C.

He should have been the first to quit. Although Trump would have still had a strong lead, there would have been the outside chance that California could have had a chance to make a difference.
