Cruz calls for Kasich to get out of GOP race

WASHINGTON (AP) -

Republican Ted Cruz is continuing his call for Ohio Gov. John Kasich to get out of the presidential race.

Cruz said in an interview Tuesday on WTMJ radio in Milwaukee that any candidate who doesn't have a path to winning should end their campaign.

"At this point," he said, "Kasich has been mathematically eliminated."

Cruz's comments come as Wisconsin voters cast ballots in that state primary. Cruz was leading in the polls, but Kasich was trying to win in at least one congressional district. The statewide winner gets 18 delegates, while three delegates are awarded to the winner of each of the state's eight congressional districts.

Republican front-runner Donald Trump has also called on Kasich to get out of the race. Both Cruz and Trump see their chances improving without Kasich taking votes, and delegates, away from them.
