Last night, by winning the Indiana primary and forcing Ted Cruz to drop out, Donald Trump effectively clinched the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. This has led some Republican hands to reconcile themselves to Trump as their best hope to defeat Hillary Clinton. But a party that willingly places Donald Trump at the top of the ticket has relinquished its claim to the allegiance of principled conservatives.

UnitedHealth Group, America’s largest health insurer, announced today that it would be abandoning Obamacare’s insurance exchanges, after absorbing hundreds of millions in losses. While the exchanges can continue to function without United, United’s departure could represent the “canary in the coal mine”: a signal that other insurers will not be able to remain in these highly unstable markets.

Ted Cruz’s definitive victory over Donald Trump in Wisconsin isn’t just about one day in the news cycle, or about “momentum.” Cruz has achieved something that a few weeks ago seemed impossible: he has made it more likely than not that Donald Trump will be defeated at the Republican National Convention. Here’s why.

On Wednesday, Fox News announced that it would be canceling a Republican presidential debate, scheduled for Monday, March 21 in Salt Lake City, due to the withdrawals of Donald Trump and then John Kasich. “We had hoped to contrast Governor Kasich’s positive inclusive approach to problem solving with Trump’s campaign of division,” said John Weaver, Kasich’s chief strategist. But that’s nonsense. Kasich bailed because he knew that, one-on-one, Ted ...

On Tuesday, Donald Trump crushed the opposition, winning 110 of the 119 bound delegates available in the “Acela primary” of northeastern states. Ted Cruz tried to bounce back by naming former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina as his Vice Presidential pick. Cruz is hoping that Fiorina’s roots in California could help him compete better in that state’s crucial June 7 primary. But the Fiorina pick could well assure Donald Trump the GOP nomination.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio has suspended his presidential campaign, after losing his home state to Donald Trump by nearly 20 percentage points. It’s a disappointing end for Rubio, who was the Republican Party’s best hope for winning the general election, and for expanding the GOP tent to younger voters and minorities. But for Rubio supporters like myself, there is no time to grieve, because the hour is late, and there is only one option left for co...
