The Indiana primary should offer some political intrigue after GOP candidates John Kasich and Ted Cruz brokered a deal in which Kasich would stop campaigning in Indiana and in return Cruz would clear the path for him in Oregon and New Mexico.

All of this is part of an effort to stop frontrunner Donald Trump from getting the delegates he needs to secure the GOP nomination by the convention this summer.
