ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump wins the backing of former Indiana men's basketball coach Bobby Knight, ahead of a key vote in Indiana May 3rd. At a campaign rally in Indianapolis ahead of a key primary in Indiana, Knight said, "You folks are taking a look at the most prepared man in history to step in as President of the United States." To Indiana, which is shaping up to be Sen. Ted Cruz's best, and perhaps last, chance to slow Trump's momentum toward the Republican nomination for the Nov. 8 presidential election to succeed Democratic President Barack Obama. If Cruz, a U.S. senator from Texas, can win a large share of the state's 57 delegates on May 3, it will boost the chances that Trump will not be able to amass the 1,237 delegates he needs to clinch the nomination before the party's convention in July. That could give Cruz a shot at convincing delegates to back him for president instead. A loss to Trump in Indiana would effectively cripple Cruz's already faltering bid, and increase pressure on the party to rally around Trump as the prospective nominee.
