INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Ohio Governor John Kasich is scheduled attend a private meeting in downtown Indianapolis Tuesday following the announcement that his campaign is suspending efforts in Indiana to help his opponent, Ted Cruz.
The two Republican presidential candidates revealed a strategic move to join forces in order to block Donald Trump from securing the GOP nomination this summer. Kasich agreed to stop campaigning in the Hoosier state, while Cruz agreed to do the same in New Mexico and Oregon.
“John Kasich and I disagree on a number of policy issues, but one thing we both agree on is that electing Hillary Clinton will be a disaster for this country,” Cruz said at a campaign rally in Johnson County Monday. “And if Donald Trump is the nominee, it elects Hillary Clinton.”
Despite the weekend announcement about this new partnership, Kasich is scheduled for a stop at Indianapolis’ Columbia Club Tuesday. FOX 59 has learned this event is closed to the press. Kasich’s campaign canceled two public appearances that were originally scheduled for Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Cruz plans to continue his efforts to sway Kasich supporters and win Indiana. He has a rally at Hoosier Gym in Knightstown at 7 p.m. Tuesday. You can find ticket information here.
