I don’t know if this is coordinated [update – yes it is, see below], or just Ted Cruz doing what he thinks is best to keep Trump from 1237 delegates, but it’s the BREAKING NEWS of tonight:

Kasich has been taking delegates in more liberal states from Trump. So contrary to the one-on-one theory, it may be better to have both Kasich and Cruz in the race dividing up responsibilties. It’s a recognition that failure — since the beginnig of the primary season — to coordinate against Trump may result in Trump’s plurality of votes resulting in a majority of delegates because it turns out the system is “rigged” in Trump’s favor.

UPDATES:

The campaigns apparently have coordinated the effort.

Does this mean a possible “unity ticket” at the convention to Stop Trump? Hard to see that, since neither Kasich nor Cruz seems like a person to take the second spot.

They each think they have a path to victory on the second or third or fourth ballots at the convention, but they don’t get to that unless they stop Trump on the first ballot.
