Kasich gives up, leaving GOP crown to Trump
A philosophical Gov. John Kasich suspended his 10-month campaign for president on Wednesday. His departure left New York real estate developer Donald Trump as the only claimant to the Republican party nomination, though Mr. Kasich had so few delegates that he wasn’t regarded as a serious threat. “The Lord has a purpose for me, as he has for everyone,” Mr. Kasich said at the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens — the same place where he announced his endorsement by former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in March.
