Presidential Election 2016
A campaign of cringeworthy moments for Ted Cruz came to an epic end Tuesday night as he suspended his campaign — and promptly elbowed his wife, Heidi, in the face!
After the crushing Indiana primary results were announced, Cruz and his family took the stage to admit defeat to Donald Trump. Trump won 51 delegates in Indiana while his Cruz and John Kasich won zero.
“Thank you to each of you and God bless you,” Cruz told an applauding crowd after admitting defeat.
The Texas senator embraced his wife for a few seconds, but as Cruz went to hug his father , he narrowly avoided punching his wife, then elbowed her in the face.
It was a perfect way to end an imperfect campaign.
