As I write begin to write this 10 minutes after the close of the Indiana primary, with ~10% of the vote counted @realDonaldTrump has been declared the winner. He leads @tedcruz by something approaching a 2:1 ratio in the vote count. More interesting is what Cruz will be saying in his yet-to-come concession speech tonight. Eight hours earlier today, @AP reported an unidentified Cruz campaign aide said a somber Cruz had "given up" on Indiana and was preparing to layoff campaign staff as soon as tonight. The report was later embellished to say Cruz would "stay in to the convention." Earlier today @tedcruz called into the @glennbeck radio show. For those who came in late, Glenn Beck has been promoting and campaigning with Cruz for these many months. (At the same time, reports of Beck's media empire crumbling under a multi-million debt load have surfaced in the last week, with ~40 staff laid off and "bureaus" outside Texas closed. Yesterday Beck denied the financial failures were due to campaigning for Cruz.) Beck closed the phone call with Cruz saying "I will see you tonight at your victory party." Glenn's radio show tomorrow morning should be interesting. To be sure, win or lose in November, the Republican party insiders' apple cart has been upset by @realDonaldTrump. Hopefully the old way of smoke-filled back rooms within Washington are torpedoed. I wouldn't be surprised if some liberal Democrats don't cross over to say "enough" with exported jobs, an economy muddling along with a ~0.5% GDP growth rate, porous borders, and IS/ISIS/ISIL/Daesh.
