Last night, after a crushing defeat in Indiana, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) bowed out of the race and suspended his campaign. Now, it's beginning to look like Ohio Gov. John Kasich will be doing the same.

Kasich has canceled his events today, and is planning on making a statement at 5 p.m. It's expected that this will be the suspension of his campaign for president.

Kasich remained in fourth place in the delegate race as of last night, despite the fact that there were only three candidates remaining in the race. Florida Senator Marco Rubio still had more delegates than Kasich, despite suspending his own campaign over a month ago.

Looking ahead, things weren't too great for Kasich. He was polling extremely poorly in West Virginia.

Kasich's exit means that Donald Trump is now officially the presumptive Republican nominee for president.
