Ted Cruz Suspends Presidential Campaign After Indiana Rout

Breaking: Cruz Suspends Presidential Campaign After Indiana Rout – Dallas Morning News

.

.
Ted Cruz ended his presidential campaign Tuesday night after a rout in Indiana, unable to gain traction against a rival he calls a pathological liar.

Donald Trump is still about 200 delegates shy of the magic number needed to clinch the Republican nomination. Cruz’s decision will make it far easier for the New York mogul to collect the 1,237 delegate majority needed to avert a contested convention, leaving the anti-Trump effort demoralized and struggling.

Campaign manager Jeff Roe confirmed that Cruz is suspending his campaign.

The concession of defeat came on one of the most vitriol=filled days of a tumultuous campaign. The senator’s wife, Heidi Cruz, joined him at a converted train station in downtown Indianapolis, evening light streaming through the stain glass onto 200 or so dismayed supporters.

Indiana was not a must=win state for Trump. But he won decisively. For Cruz, who had painted the Hoosier State as a crucial front in the battle to keep the nomination from Trump, the loss was devastating. Cruz spent most of the last two weeks in Indiana. He named a running mate there. He persuaded Ohio Gov. John Kasich to retreat to bolster his own chances. And yet he may have lost nearly all of the state’s 57 delegates…

S.F. principal delays vote results, saying winners aren’t diverse

When San Francisco middle school principal Lena Van Haren saw which kids on her campus had been elected to the student council, she was disturbed at the lack of diversity among the winners. There were no Latino or black candidates chosen for the top four spots.

Her concern for a representative student government, given the preponderance of students of color at Everett Middle School in the Mission District, may have been understandable. What she did about it, however, swiftly raised a different kind of alarm.

Van Haren decided to withhold the results of the Oct. 9 election for more than a week, saying the school community needed to figure out how to have a more representative government.

“This is complex, but as a parent and a principal, I truly believe it behooves us to be thoughtful about our next steps here so that we can have a diverse student council that is truly representative of all voices at Everett,” she told parents in an e-mail Thursday.

The response was immediate and at times vehement. Parents complained; students were angry. It appeared, some parents argued, that diversity was trumping democracy.

Scumbag Store Owner ‘Suspends’ Brave Clerk For Defending His Business With A Gun (Video)

Store Clerk ‘Suspended’ From Job After Using Gun To Halt Robbery – Breitbart

A 58-year-old store clerk and Vietnam War veteran was “suspended” from his job at Mac’s Convenience Store in Rutland, Vermont, after using a gun on June 15 to stop a knife-wielding man from robbing the business.

According to the Rutland Herald, clerk Don Pitaniello was getting ready “to close up” the business at about 9:30 p.m. “when a man wearing a hoodie and a bandana over his face entered the store and threatened him with a roughly 5-inch blade.”

Pitaniello said he has carried a gun “all his life,” so he was ready when the robber entered. He said the man in the hoodie showed the knife, asked him to “empty the register,” then began waving the knife in his face. Pitaniello responded by drawing his .380 handgun and “pointing it at the [robber’s] face.” He told robber to “get the (expletive) out of” the store and the robber complied.

Pitaniello has since been suspended and says he may lose his job but “[he] doesn’t care.” He said: “I’m a firm believer in having a gun and not needing it rather than the other way around. I can always find a new job.”
