In a move that may be too little too late, Donald Trump’s two remaining opponents for the Republican presidential nomination, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, have cut a deal to play in certain states and avoid others in an effort to stop dividing the anti-Trump vote.
The agreement, which was announced Sunday night in nearly simultaneous statements from the campaigns of the Texas senator and Ohio governor, could feed into Trump’s criticisms of the party’s nominating process, which he’s blasted as “rigged.” The approach is one that 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney urged his party’s voters to adopt weeks ago
.”Our campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Governor Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico, and we would hope that allies of both campaigns would follow our lead,” said Jeff Roe, Cruz’s campaign manager. “In other states holding their elections for the remainder of the primary season, our campaign will continue to compete vigorously to win.”
