In a desperate attempt to stop GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, the Ted Cruz and John Kasich camps have announced that they are aligning together against the business mogul.
According to Bizpac Review, Cruz and Kasich each released statements late Sunday night indicating that they plan to coordinate their resources in this endeavor by each concentrating their campaigns on particular states.
Cruz’s statement, which came through his campaign manager Jeff Roe, read:
“Having Donald Trump at the top of the ticket in November would be a sure disaster for Republicans. Not only would Trump get blown out by Clinton or Sanders, but having him as our nominee would set the party back a generation. To ensure that we nominate a Republican who can unify the Republican Party and win in November, our campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico, and we would hope that allies of both campaigns would follow our lead. In other states holding their elections for the remainder of the primary season, our campaign will continue to compete vigorously to win.”
Katich released his statement on Twitter.

It didn’t take long for Trump to respond to this by blasting the two men on Twitter.
Zeke Miller, political reporter for Time magazine, then took to Twitter with some observations of his own.
