Cruz exits Republican race for president

WASHINGTON (AP) -

Ted Cruz is ending his campaign for president, putting Donald Trump on a glide path to claim the Republican Party's nomination. 

The conservative firebrand and Texas senator had tried to cast himself as the only viable alternative to the billionaire businessman.

But his campaign said he was to announce his decision to drop out of the race after losing to Trump in Tuesday's Indiana primary.
