Indiana Voters Could Determine the Fate of Ted Cruz’s Campaign Tonight

What’s Cruz’s path after Tuesday’s Indiana primaries?

GOP candidate Ted Cruz and his family are making a few last campaign stops as Hoosiers head to the polls Tuesday, in what many have characterized as Cruz’ last stand.

In one lasting image from Monday, Cruz was circled by a throng of Trump supporters who were mocking him and his citizenship status as he tried to make his case. It didn’t look good for him.

Anything could happen Tuesday, but the expectation based on the polls is that Cruz will not be able to get the number of delegates he desperately needs in Indiana. One of the big questions: After Tuesday night, does he press ahead or hang up his running shoes?

Katie Glueck‘s been covering the Cruz campaign for Politico. She says Cruz has put a lot of work in ensuring he’ll stay in the presidential race.

“Cruz has said that as long as he has a path he is going to stay in this race,” Glueck says. “He is someone who has invested a lot in his ground game in his organization in the upcoming states.”

If he does not have a strong showing in Indiana Tuesday, Glueck says, his path gets considerably narrower and Cruz’s seventh straight loss to candidate Donald Trump.
