ST PAUL – Donald Trump won big in yesterday’s Indiana primary, causing Ted Cruz to drop out of the presidential race. Today, John Kasich announced he’s suspending his campaign.
Joe Davis, Executive Director at ABM, released the following statement:
“Republican legislators have been avoiding saying whether or not they’ll support Donald Trump if he’s the GOP nominee for president. Now, the path towards the nomination is clear for him, and Minnesotans deserve to know whether or not their elected officials will support Trump.
“Minnesota Republicans have showcased their shared priorities with Trump by focusing on things like defunding Planned Parenthood and cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthy. These extreme priorities have become the hallmark of today’s Republican party, both at the national level and in our state, but Minnesotans just aren’t that extreme.”
