Trump seeks to knock out Cruz in Indiana

May 3, 2016 11:48 am

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is poised to deliver a crushing blow to rival Ted Cruz as voters in Indiana head to the polls.

 

Cruz’s advisers had targeted Indiana as the senator’s best hope of halting Trump’s march to the nomination.

 

However, polls show Mr Trump with a sizeable lead in the mid-western state.

 

Cruz and fellow candidate John Kasich are hoping to force an open convention where party officials, not voters, choose the nominee.

 

If Trump wins Indiana, the New York businessman will likely reach the required 1,237 delegates to secure the nomination and avoid such a scenario.
