Cruz Drops Out

Hi all,

I know our class has come to a close, but I thought you might be interested in this article. In the wake of many discussions about Donald Trump, it seems that he will be the Republican nominee. I find this is a sad development for the 2016 election. Amidst a political climate that purports to discourage polarization and extremism, the electorate seems to be accepting bigotry and misinformation. That said, I am not sure Ted Cruz's remaining in the election would have made anything better. Sorry for the somber post-class post! Good luck on all finals!
