Ohio Gov. John Kasich says his pact Ted Cruz to collaborate on strategy against Donald Trump is a matter of resource allocation, and nothing more.
Speaking to NBC's “Today” Tuesday, as voters prepared to vote in five Northeastern states, Kasich insisted that his partnership with Cruz is not indication that he is giving up on his campaign.
“I'm not over there running town halls. I'm not over there running television ads,” he said, referring to Indiana. “But I am in other states and I will be at the convention.”
Kasich said “the fact is, I don't have unlimited resources,” to campaign everywhere, noting that he is not campaigning in Indiana, where Cruz is expected to do well on May 3, and is instead shifting his resources to Oregon. — AP
From the polls:
At Lyndhurst Elementary School on Wildwood Parkway in Edmondson Village, flyer-toting campaigners descended on voters trickling into the parking lot Tuesday morning.
Gail Owens, 56, a Democrat who lives in Edmondson Village, said the Baltimore mayor’s race is the most important to her.
“We need to have a leader for us to follow,” she said. “Somebody that’s strong that’s going to come through with what they promise.”
As she left, Dorothy Forrest, 70, another Edmondson Village Democrat, said she was happy with the turnout.
At the end of campaigns that can get ugly, Forrest said, Election Day is a chance to look forward.
“I think everybody’s ready for a change now,” she said. “We’re looking at the positive. We have to forget about the negativeness and look at the positive now.”
Delores Diggs, 57, a Democrat who also lives nearby, agreed: “It’s time for a change.” — Colin Campbell
