Ohio Gov. John Kasich will suspend his presidential campaign Wednesday afternoon, according to campaign sources. Kasich's decision makes Donald Trump the last remaining Republican presidential candidate, and the de facto nominee, after Texas Sen. Ted Cruz dropped out of the race last night after a bruising loss in the Indiana primary.
