Donald Trump will officially be the last man standing: John Kasich is ending his campaign, reports Politico and a host of other media outlets. The Ohio governor won just a single Republican contest, his home state of Ohio, and had been mathematically eliminated from the nomination for weeks now. He plans an announcement at 5pm Eastern, one day after he and Ted Cruz were trounced by Trump in Indiana. (More John Kasich 2016 stories.)
