Sen. Ted Cruz addressed his supporters, commending Marco Rubio for his campaign and urging Rubio’s supporters to line up behind him.
“After tonight, America now has a clear choice going forward,” Cruz said, implying there’s no viable path forward for John Kasich. “To those who supported Marco, who worked so hard, we welcome you with open arms.”
He also slammed the front-runner, Donald Trump, without naming him. “Do you want a candidate shares your values,” he asked, or “a candidate who has spent decades opposing your values?”
Trump, he said, “may be the one person on the face of the Earth who Hillary Clinton can beat in the general election.”

Donald Trump addressed his supporters from his Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, where he reiterated most of his standard talking points. “Apple and all of these great companies will be making their product in the United States, not in China,” he said.
He also noted how much money was spent on attack ads against him in Florida. “Nobody has ever in the history of politics received the negative advertising that I have,” he said. “My numbers went up, I don’t understand it.”

John Kasich thanked his supporters in Berea, Ohio on Tuesday night after winning his state. As he has for most of his campaign, he struck a positive note.
“I will not take the low road to the highest office in the land,” he said. “I think we can rally the people in Washington because I’m going to remind them that before we’re Republicans and Democrats, we’re Americans.”
At the start of his remarks, a Trump supporter interrupted Kasich. The governor said, “When you went to college in the 1970s, you appreciate a good, peaceful protest every once in a while.”
Donald Trump won Ohio in the General Election.
