Lindsey Graham pleads with John Kasich to get out of the race so that Ted Cruz can take out Donald Trump
Sen. Lindsey Graham already held his nose and said he would be supporting Sen. Ted Cruz going forward, but this morning took things a step forward by pleading with Ohio Gov. John Kasich to get out so that Cruz can take out frontrunner Donald Trump more easily.
'And I hope John Kasich is listening,' Graham said this morning on Face the Nation. 'John, if I thought you would win, I'd be behind you, because you are the most electable candidate.'
Graham called on Kasich, who is in third place of the three remaining GOP candidates, to work with Cruz to deny Trump the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the nomination outright.
'And if you're not willing to work with Ted, then you're hurting the cause,' Graham said. 'By Kasich going to Utah, you're making it harder for Ted to get 50 percent.'
