Ohio governor John Kasich attempted to be the voice of reason for the last few month in the Republican Presidential Primary, but he was always a longshot to earn the nomination. On Tuesday, any slim chance of winning that nomination came to an end.
According to multiple reports, Kasich has informed those close to him that he plans to suspend his campaign later today.
Just confirmed Kasich will suspend his campaign this afternoon, per a senior campaign adviser.

The news comes just one day after front-runner Donald Trump swept all of the delegates in the Indiana Primary which forced Ted Cruz to drop out of the race Tuesday night.
With Kasich and Cruz now out of the running, Trump is the last man standing and is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
It’s now time for Trump and his campaign to look towards the general election. If primary season is any indication, Trump will be willing to do and say anything — literally — to earn the nomination so you cannot count him out, no matter how sensible you would hope voters will be.
