As Jeb Bush endorsed Ted Cruz to be the GOP nominee he did something more: he called for John Kasich to drop out of the race in order to stop Donald Trump, something that the New York Times reports Kasich will not do:
Mr. Kasich refused, saying that he, not the Texas senator, was the best option to stop Mr. Trump. But his argument was undercut by his dismal showings Tuesday in Utah and Arizona, where he won no delegates — as well as by the surprise endorsement Wednesday morning by Mr. Bush of Mr. Cruz.
Mr. Bush, who dropped out of the presidential race last month, is the latest mainstream Republican — following Mitt Romney and Senator Lindsey Graham — who is ideologically closer to Mr. Kasich, but whose embrace of Mr. Cruz is a strategic calculation that he has a better shot at stopping Mr. Trump.
Kasich is currently campaigning in Wisconsin where the next Republican primary will be held on April 5. Advisors to the Ohio governor says that with states such as Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and others coming up, it is he and not Cruz best suited to stump Trump.
