From staff reports

In the wake of his loss in Tuesday’s Indiana primary, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz suspended his presidential campaign.

That means his campaign events, including a Wednesday rally in Spokane that was announced Tuesday afternoon, are likely canceled. Efforts to reach campaign officials were unsuccessful Tuesday evening but Cruz had called Indiana a must-win contest and said after his loss that he didn’t have a path to victory.

The two remaining Republican candidates are expected to make stops in Washington in the near future as ballots for the state presidential primary start arriving in voters’ mailboxes.

Donald Trump’s campaign has said Trump likely will campaign in Spokane, but details haven’t been announced. John Kasich is expected to campaign in the state next Monday, a spokesman said, and will address the state GOP convention on May 19.
