With Cruz Out, Trump Forges Ahead

That's it for Ted.

After losing in Indiana by a wide margin last night, Ted Cruz has officially suspended his campaign.

New York Times political correspondent Patrick Healy, Jennifer Rubin, who writes for the "Right Turn" blog for The Washington Post, Christina Greer, assistant professor of political science at Fordham University and POLITICO's chief political correspondent Glenn Thrush discuss Donald Trump's presumed GOP nomination and Senator Bernie Sanders' strong showing in Indiana.

@BrianLehrer What happened to "country before party"?

@BrianLehrer I'm a volunteer for Sanders's revolution--- we the people. I couldn't be more proud of the work my fellow berners did.

@BrianLehrer IMO, both parties are going to fracture, as they're going to be A LOT of GOP's voting Democratic. Maybe 2 new parties?

@BrianLehrer please tell your guest that @BernieSanders supporters do care about the future of the country, and they shouldn't pack up
