offering free flying for putting up with crying. we're going to investigate in "the mix" on this wednesday may the 4th. >> announcer: from abc news this is "world news now." good morning. i'm diane macedo. >> and i'm kendis gibson. may we be the first and hopefully the last to say may the 4th be with you. >> may the 4th be with you. >> every year we look forward to that. >> we do. >> yes. >> that as well as on april 30th saying it's going to be may. >> we missed that one this year. >> we did. because it was on a sunday. but man, it's been a bruising, literally bruising and physically bruising campaign. >> tough day for the cruz family today. >> did you see this video? so after ted cruz bounced out of the race, he then kind of accidentally hits his wife in the face twice. >> it was hard to watch, particularly for his wife, because she got hit twice. >> she got hit twice. but it really gives you a sense of how
for many of them. the candidates and their wives. >> an honest mistake, clearly. he was trying to go in for the one hug and she was trying to go in for the triple hug. >> and then she got -- >> we've all been there, right? >> not quite. but it's been tough. >> we have to talk about more seriously this sudden turn in the race for the white house. as donald trump delivers this crushing blow to ted cruz. >> and it was a surprise from cruz because after vowing to fight all the way to the convention he abruptly dropped out of the race saying his bruising loss in indiana leaves him with no viable path to victory. trump decisively winning the indiana primary, getting 53% of the vote compared to 37% for cruz. and he picked up at least 51 of the state's republican delegates, bringing his overall count to 1,049. >> as for the democrats, bernie sanders edged out hillary clinton 52% to 48%. but they'll split the delegates almost evenly. clinton now has more than 2,200 delegates in all. and sanders needs to win
clinch the nomination. it's your voice, your vote. abc's marci gonzalez is live in indianapolis with more. good morning, marci. >> reporter: good morning, diane and kendis. an absolutely defining day in this race. you could just hear how shocked people were in the crowd here in indianapolis as ted cruz made that announcement. the republican race for president narrowing after a crushing loss in indiana. ted cruz dropping out. >> we gave it everything we've got. but the voters chose another path. we are suspending our campaign. >> reporter: and with that the head of the rnc tweeting that donald trump will be the presumptive gop nominee. trump celebrating and changing his tone about ted cruz. >> he is one hell of a competitor. he is a tough, smart guy. and he has got an amazing future. >> reporter: now looking beyond
in cleveland. >> we're going after hillary clinton. >> reporter: hillary clinton saying she too is now focused on the general election. despite abc news projecting bernie sanders will win the democratic primary in indiana. >> i feel good. i just feel generally good. >> reporter: and though abc estimates that it is mathematically impossible for sanders to clinch the nomination with only pledged delegates, sanders maintains his optimism. >> i sense some great victories coming. i understand that secretary clinton thinks this campaign is over. i've got some bad news for her. >> reporter: so he's staying in the race. and on the gop side so is john kasich. his chief strategist saying despite the odds against him he does plan to continue his campaign. >> that's at even with only 8% last night. and marci,
softer side of trump last night after cruz announced he's suspending his campaign. but man, that's a different change in tone from earlier in the day. >> oh, it is a huge change in tone. just a few hours earlier. donald trump was on television, backing these claims made by the "national enquirer" that ted cruz's father had been connected to, even photographed with john f. kennedy's assassin lee harvey oswald. cruz and his father absolutely denying that and then cruz went on the attack, letting loose a barrage of insults, calling him a pathological liar, a serial philanderer, a bully. so after one of the most heated days in the campaign it was definitely a turn to hear those very positive, flattering words from donald trump. kendis and diane. >> it's going to be a while before things are healed between the two. >> i'm guessing so. >> all right. marci, thank you. so the republican establishment has acknowledged what they've been fearing for a
report. the tweet by rnc chair reince priebus says donald trump will be the presumptive nominee, we all need to unite and focus on defeating hillary clinton. and for more on what it all means let's turn to abc news political director rick klein. good morning, rick. >> diane and kendis, donald trump taking ownership of the republican party, blowing away his rivals in indiana. now the all but inevitable republican nominee for president. ted cruz dropping out of the race after this embarrassing defeat. and trump doing it in his classic style. taking control of the party, its issues, its voters all bending to his will despite fact that awful his critics have massed in indiana. and now trump turning his sights on the general election. hillary clinton likely to be the democratic nominee but she suffers a big setback once again in indiana. no one has told the democratic party's primary voters this race is over. still massing for bernie sanders. bernie able to win in indiana. he may win some additional contests even if he can't catch up in
some big surprises delivered by indiana voters in both directions. much different directions for the two leading candidates almost certain to face each other. diane and kendis? >> rick, thanks so much. and donald trump's hometown papers are having a little fun with these primary results. the front page of today's "new york post" is emblazoned with this clever headline. "hoosier daddy." and the "new york daily news" stuffed the gop elephant into a casket and declared the death of the republican party. reince priebus is not going to be happy to see that one. >> no. some mixed results on the papers, the front lines here in new york. we're going to turn our focus overseas now. and secretary of state john kerry is out with a warning to syria as well as its allies. kerry said the target date for starting to move syrian president bashar al assad out of office is august 1st. kerry added that if the syrian government and its backers in russia and iran do not comply they risk the consequences of a new u.s. approach to ending the ongoing civil war. it's unclea

and armed drones. >> it shows you it's a serious fight that we have to wage in iraq. >> reporter: and americans are getting closer to the fight every day. like the s.e.a.l., they now travel outside the larger bases to smaller outposts like the ones we visited recently as they prepared to take back the isis-held town of mosul. the return of ground troops to iraq has been called a non-combat mission by the white house, but this death was the third american combat death in the last two years, and with u.s. forces now closer to the fight it will probably not be the last. martha raddatz, abc news, washington. >> and here in new york state he was once one of the most powerful men in the empire state, but sheldon silver now faces a long prison term. the former speaker of the state assembly was given 12 years following his conviction on corruption charges. silver briefly addressed the court and
