John Kasich rumored to be dropping out of presidential race

John Kasich is out

Ohio Gov. John Kasich is reportedly getting set to drop out of the presidential race, according to NBC News‘ Andrea Mitchell.

NBC says the governor will make an official announcement about his decision to suspend his campaign on Wednesday.

Kasich’s canceled an early Wednesday press conference and instead announced the governor would make a statement in Columbus at 5 p.m. ET.

Kasich has failed to remain competitive in the race towards the GOP nomination, falling behind the likes of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump all but sealed up the nomination following a landslide win Tuesday night in Indiana’s primary.

Kasich was the last major Republican presidential candidate remaining in the race after Senator Ted Cruz dropped out Tuesday night following the results of the Indiana primary.

With Kasich out Donald Trump is all but sure to claim leadership of the GOP heading into his one-on-one race with the Democratic primary winner.
