Ted Cruz, who ended his presidential campaign Tuesday following a defeat in the Indiana primaries, has also canceled a campaign event in Spokane on Wednesday.

The junior senator from Texas was scheduled to appear at the Spokane Convention Center at 3:05 p.m. The Cruz campaign sent out a media notification Tuesday evening canceling the event.

Donald Trump, now the presumptive GOP nominee following Cruz’s departure Tuesday and John Kasich’s exit Wednesday morning, had announced plans to campaign in Washington ahead of the May 24 primary. No dates have been confirmed, and there has been no announcement from Trump’s camp about Washington state following the exit of Cruz and Kasich.
