Another important Tuesday in the race for the White House. Indiana voters head to the polls today, and could help seal the deal for Donald Trump  and Hillary Clinton.. and end the race for Ted Cruz or Bernie Sanders.

Trump says “it’s over” for Ted Cruz if Trump wins Indiana. The latest polling suggests Trump has a double digit lead in the state. If Trump wins Indiana, his path to the nomination becomes easier and much more likely.

Ted Cruz got in a huge verbal confrontation with Trump supporters at a rally yesterday in Indiana.

Hillary Clinton leads Bernie Sanders in Indiana by just a few points according to recent polling, though she has not been campaigning hard there. Instead she kicked off a two day campaign tour through coal country including stops in Kentucky and West Virginia..  where she was met by tiny crowds and a heckler at one stop.

Sanders campaigned yesterday in Evansville, Indiana telling voters he’ll “fight as hard as we can for every vote.”

Bernie Sanders campaign reported disappointing numbers for fundraising last month.
