CalWatchdog Morning Read – May 4

by CalWatchdog Staff | May 4, 2016 10:29 am


Good morning. Happy hump day.

Business tycoon Donald Trump won the Indiana primary yesterday, forcing Texas Senator Ted Cruz, his biggest remaining rival, from the race.

Trump has all but locked up the nomination, with even Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus conceding Trump will be the nominee[1] (Ohio Governor John Kasich is still in the race, although he’s struggled to make an impact). 

The biggest news of the race yesterday, however, is not Trump winning or Cruz dropping. Instead, it is the fact that California’s June primary has once again been relegated to irrelevant. The Sacramento Bee[2] has more.
