  • Trump launches negative ad against Cruz in Indiana

    The Hill ^ | 4/28/2016 | Rebecca Savransky
    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Thursday launched a new ad in Indiana attacking rival Ted Cruz for supporting "bad trade deals," CNN reported. "Bad trade deals supported by Ted Cruz have hurt Indiana," the ad says at the beginning. It calls Cruz out, saying he voted for Obama's "job-killing trade deals." It also says the Texas senator supported expanding visas for foreign workers by 500 percent. "No surprise Cruz supported amnesty for 11 million illegals and would have welcomed more Syrian refugees," the ad says. "Only Donald Trump will stand up to China, Japan and Mexico and renegotiate bad...

    The results of the first statewide poll for Indiana’s upcoming primary show a small lead for party front runners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, with a tight race on both sides of the aisle. The WTHR/HPI Indiana Poll has Trump with a 6-point lead over his closest challenger Ted Cruz. The poll indicates a record turnout will favor Trump over the other candidates. The results prove just how pivotal Indiana's primary race is going to be nationally.

    CNN ^ | April 28, 2016 | Theodore Schleifer and Eric Bradner
    Cruz allies and people close to the campaign describe a budding sense of gloom, with internal polls diving as Trump mounted even stronger than expected showings in his native northeast. In Indiana, which Cruz backers once believed they were favored to win after his strong defeat of Trump in Wisconsin, Cruz's numbers have fallen precipitously: Once leading, Cruz now trails in the state by eight to 10 points, according to a person who has seen the numbers, with Trump over the 40% mark. Cruz's campaign did not respond when asked about those figures...

    NY Times ^ | Apri 28,2016 | Nate Cohn
    For the last month or so, Donald Trump’s path to 1,237 delegates has been clear: Win Indiana and California. But after his strong showings in the Northeast, Indiana no longer seems to be a must-win state to capture the Republican nomination. Sure, winning the state would be very helpful toward gaining a majority of delegates. Without Indiana, he would struggle to get the 1,237 bound delegates needed to wrap up the nomination heading into the convention. But there’s now a credible path to winning on the first ballot without it. The main reason is Mr. Trump’s success on Tuesday among...

    “Carly Fiorina pioneered– pioneered– the practice of outsourcing jobs,” Miller said. “Her great legacy in business has been in finding a way to shift jobs to lower wage countries and replacing American workers with foreign workers. So I think we can all say that Ted Cruz, who supports offshoring jobs, and Carly Fiorina, who supports offshoring jobs, they’re now officially the outsourcing ticket.” “A critical issue for the state of Indiana is steel production and manufacturing,” Miller said, noting that, “on the crucial trade vote in 2015, Ted Cruz voted for Barack Obama’s trade bill that would destroy… the middle...

    Princeton Election Consortium ^ | April 28, 2016 | Sam Wang
    Media types want you to get your knickers in a twist about Indiana. However, the data suggests that it doesn’t matter any more. Rationally speaking, it is probably time to stop writing so much about the Republican race for delegates. Also, a moratorium on “brokered-convention” articles? Today I write about the PEC delegate snapshot. It is based on data posted here. All polls are current, including Trump +6% in Indiana (n=3 polls). Based on Tuesday’s voting, in which Cruz underperformed polls by a median of 4 percentage points, I will no longer assign a Cruz bonus. Note that Trump overperformed...

    Cruz and allies have five days to stop Trump When Ted Cruz unveiled Carly Fiorina as his running mate on Wednesday, and when he struck that alliance/truce with John Kasich on Sunday night, they were from a position of weakness – not strength. The reason: If Cruz and the “Stop Trump” movement don’t win in Indiana on May 3, they’re done. It’s that simple. After Trump ran the table in Tuesday’s primaries, including getting at least 35 of the 54 Pennsylvania unbound delegates (and that number could go above 40), a win in Indiana – even by a single point...

    According to numerous national media reports, Senator Ted Cruz is moments away from announcing Carly Fiorina as his running mate.The transparency of intent is brutally obvious. Cruz is desperate; all current indications coming out of Indiana do not look well for his ongoing ‘hail-Mary’ chances. The Kasich/Cruz deal to split up states in a futile effort to block Donald Trump is backfiring. Ted Cruz “authenticity” and “likability” continue to plummet. The more Ted talks, the less people like him. He needs a reset, fast. Enter Carly Fiorina, the consummate DC cocktail class republican. A failed corporate CEO who was jettisoned...

Carlson singled out RedState for attacking Trump’s voters as “diseased” and “probably on Oxycontin” or “secretly liberal,” but insisted that such talk is inherently counterproductive. “He is on track to receive more votes than any Republican nominee ever,” Carlson began. “He’s already surpassed Mitt Romney’s number in 2012.” He was...

    The Pennsylvania numbers — Trump 49, Cruz 26, Kasich 22 — are eye-popping, but you should know the delegate rules there well enough by now to know there’s a catch. Namely, 54 of the 71 delegates are unbound regardless of what Republican voters do in the primary. In theory, Cruz could lose the popular vote by 25 points and still walk away with a majority of the state’s delegation in his pocket thanks to his delegate-wrangling operation. ----------------------- In fact, per CBS/YouGov, 68 percent of Pennsylvania Republicans say delegates should back the statewide winner.

Together this would keep Trump on a path to securing the nomination: If he does manage to win the bulk of delegates in Tuesday's round of primaries, and follows that up by a solid showing in Indiana -- which has been touted as the better chance for Cruz and Kasich to try to stop him -- then Trump would remain on pace to eventually clear the majority of 1,237 delegates later in June....

Thirty delegates will be awarded to the statewide winner and another 27 will be awarded to the winners of the state’s nine congressional districts (three delegates per district, of course).

    John Kasich is declaring victory over Ted Cruz and Donald Trump in Indiana in the battle to elect loyal convention delegates. There was no way to immediately verify the Kasich campaign's claim. The Ohio governor's top delegate strategist declined to offer names of Kasich delegates or say exactly how many delegates are his among the delegation of 57. . . . "This past week in Indiana we gained more committed delegates than Cruz and Trump out of the 57 elected," Michael Biundo, a Republican operative directing Kasich's delegate strategy, said in an email exchange with the Washington Examiner. "Our team...

    The Trump campaign had little problem getting on the ballot, having quickly gathered more than the 4,500 voter signatures necessary. And Early is convinced that Trump will take Indiana, winning over not only Republicans who like his tough talk but some cross-over Democrats, too. Despite polls that show the blustery Trump offending women, Early said he heard nothing but praise from some Tea Party-affiliated women he visited this week. The bumper stickers went fast, he said. “I don’t think he’ll have a problem with women,” Early said. Trump's delegate situation in Indiana is proving tougher. Behind the scenes, younger and...

    The IRS is struggling to ensure that illegal immigrants are able to illegally use Social Security numbers for legitimate purposes, the agency's head told senators on Tuesday, without allowing the numbers to be used for "bad" reasons. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen made the statement in response to a question from Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., during a session of the Senate Finance Committee about why the IRS appears to be collaborating with taxpayers who file tax returns using fraudulent information. Coats said that his staff had discovered the practice after looking into agency procedures. "What we learned is that ... the...

    JASPER COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Three Monon men were arrested after investigators say they took three minors to a motel to sexually assault them.

According to investigators with the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office, the three victims were picked up in White County and were eventually taken to a motel near Interstate 65 and State Road 114 in Rensselaer.

    Hundreds of abortion activists gathered at the Indiana state capital on Saturday to protest a law that protects unborn babies with disabilities like Down syndrome. The new law, signed by Gov. Mike Pence in March, is the second in the nation to ban abortions because of a genetic disability such as Down syndrome. It also bans abortions based solely on the unborn baby’s race or sex. The law includes several other abortion-related measures, such as a requirement that aborted or miscarried babies’ bodies be cremated or buried and another requirement that abortionists who have hospital admitting privileges renew them annually....

    Donald Trump’s effort to reset his campaign following defeat in Wisconsin showed no signs of paying off this weekend, as a series of technical failures by his campaign set his hopes back even further. From Thursday to Saturday, Trump suffered setbacks in Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, South Carolina and Indiana that raise new doubts about his campaign’s preparedness for the long slog of delegate hunting as the GOP race approaches a possible contested convention. He lost the battle on two fronts. Cruz picked up 28 pledged delegates in Colorado. In the other states, rival campaigns were able to place dozens of...
  • Trump’s getting trounced in Indiana

    Indiana hasn’t cast its ballots for president yet, but Donald Trump is already losing. Republican Party insiders in the state will select 27 delegates to the national convention on Saturday, and Trump is assured to be nearly shut out of support, according to interviews with a dozen party leaders and officials involved in the delegate selection process. Anti-Trump sentiment runs hot among GOP leadership in Indiana, and it’s driving a virulent rejection of the mogul among likely delegates.
