Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was hoping to pick up delegates in Indiana next week… But after this news, he can forget about it!
Legendary college basketball coach Bobby Knight, who led the University of Indiana Hoosiers from 1971 to 2000, has officially endorsed conservative businessman Donald J. Trump for President.
As coach, he led the team to three national championships and 11 Big Ten championships… He may be the best basketball coach in history. Knight, who is also known for his tough attitude, was fired for assaulting a player, but he’s still beloved by millions of Hoosier basketball fans.
Knight will rally with Trump and at least 8,000 supporters at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum in Indianapolis this week. Trump called Knight a “great coach” and a “tough, smart, strong” leader.

Polling shows Trump is already ahead by 6 points in Indiana, and Cruz is counting on an upset if he hopes to have any chance at the RNC convention. This endorsement is big news for Team Trump, leading up to Cleveland.
