While most of the country — including me — was watching the season six premiere of "Game of Thrones," the campaigns of Ted Cruz and John Kasich announced a major strategic alliance. Kasich would stop campaigning in — and trying to win — Indiana's primary May 3. Cruz would do the same in Oregon on May 17 and New Mexico on June 7. The goal is simple: To keep Donald Trump from winning the 1,237 delegates he needs to be the GOP's presidential nominee this fall. "We are very comfortable with our delegate position in Indiana already, and given the current dynamics of the primary there, we will shift our campaign’s resources West and give the Cruz campaign a clear path in Indiana," Kasich chief campaign strategist John Weaver said Sunday night.
