ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Tuesday (May 3) dropped out of his party's race for the White House after losing the Indiana primary to front-runner Donald Trump. Trump scored an important victory over rival Cruz in Indiana, a win that would appear to make him unstoppable in his march to the party's presidential nomination. Even before Cruz's announcement there was an air of resignation among some of his supporters at Cruz's evening event in Indianapolis. The loss for Cruz was a sour ending to a rough day in which he got entangled in a harsh back-and-forth with Trump. It began when the billionaire repeated a claim published by the tabloid newspaper the National Enquirer that linked Cruz's father, Cuban emigre Rafael Cruz, with President John F. Kennedy's assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.
