On Tuesday, Ted Cruz announced he would be suspending his campaign for president following his loss to Donald Trump in Indiana's GOP primary. In his concession speech, the Texas senator made it clear that dropping out of the race was a difficult decision for him to make—and to make matters worse, he accidentally hit, then elbowed, his wife, Heidi, in the face after announcing it. 

As a result of Cruz's speech on Tuesday, Donald Trump will likely secure the GOP nomination later this year—although, at this time, John Kasich remains in the running.
