|Indiana or bust! Cruz may announce his choice for Veep or he's getting out!|
Sources are saying that either Ted Cruz is dropping out or he's planning on picking failed presidential candidate Carly Fiorina as his running mate. There is talk that Republican governor of Indiana Mike Pence may endorse Cruz for president.
After a bruising defeat in the Northeast, Cruz is hoping to secure last ditch efforts in Montana, West Virginia and Indiana. We can't confirm any news at this time. But he's slated to make an announcement at 4pm.
Speculations are floating.
Odds are.... CRUZ IS DROPPING OUT THE RACE!
If Ted Cruz does happen to drop out, I'll posted it as soon as possible.
The Bern is being felt in the Democratic races in Maryland. Hillary Clinton may have won the state in close race, but some of her coattails failed to score a win.
A corrupt former mayor went down in defeat. An establishment Democrat beats the insurgent who could have achieved a political feat.

McKesson was a longshot candidate who is a vocal member of the BlackLivesMatter and ProjectZero movements.
Dixon was the former mayor of Baltimore after failed presidential candidate Martin O'Malley. O'Malley, then governor tired and failed at winning the Democratic nomination. Dixon was a political grandstander who had a history of making outlandish remarks and giving her friends and family a piece of the pie. She was indicted on federal charges for corruption. She resigned and then city district councilor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake took the role as mayor.
|Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) defeats fellow lawmaker Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) for Democratic nomination for the open U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD).|
Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) beats Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) in the Democratic primary. He will be candidate in a TOSS UP race for the seat being vacated by Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), the oldest and longest serving woman in the U.S. Senate. The seat is a TOSS UP and the challenger for the Republican seat is State Delegate Kathy Szeliga. She will make this a nail-biter race due to the fact that Van Hollen has baggage.
Edwards was one of the few Black lawmakers who would make an appearance on Fox News. She was part of the insurgency that's pushing for progressive issues such as raising the minimum wage and getting rid of the Citizen United ruling.
Now before I move on to the next post. I'll give you my take on the closely watched U.S. Senate races as of today.
Colorado - Michael Bennet (RUNNING) (TOSS UP)
Florida - Marco Rubio (RETIRING) (TOSS UP)
Ohio - Rob Portman (RUNNING) (LEANS REPUBLICAN)
Illinois - Mark Kirk (RUNNING) (LEANS DEMOCRAT)
Maryland - Barbara Mikulski (RETIRING) (TOSS UP)
New Hampshire - Kelly Ayotte (RUNNING) (LEANS REPUBLICAN)
Wisconsin - Ron Johnson (RUNNING) (TOSS UP)
Pennsylvania - Pat Toomey (RUNNING) (TOSS UP)
North Carolina - Richard Burr (RUNNING) (LEANS REPUBLICAN)
Iowa - Chuck Grassley (RUNNING) (LEANS REPUBLICAN)
Nevada - Harry Reid (RETIRING) (TOSS UP)
Now there are other races for the U.S. Senate. I won't say too much about them. Some are considered either Safe Republican or Safe Democrat. If there's a shake up in the Arizona, Louisiana and Missouri races, I'll bring it up.
