It’s time for Ted Cruz to give up the ghost and realize he has no shot of getting 1,237 delegates.
  He needs to stop being selfish and think about the country instead of himself.
The Hill reports Donald Trump basked in his New York primary victory from Trump Tower on Tuesday night, declaring that the GOP presidential nominating process is all but over.

“We don’t have much of a race anymore,” Trump said, adding that rival Ted Cruz "is just about mathematically eliminated.”

Trump is poised to take a strong majority of New York's 95 delegates on Tuesday night.
Cruz is on track for a third-place finish and possibly getting shut out, which would bring him close to being mathematically eliminated from winning the nomination before the Republican National Convention in July. Still, Cruz will soldier on, hoping to block Trump from securing the 1,237 delegates he needs to avoid a contested convention.

"We’ve won millions more votes than Sen. Cruz, millions and millions more than Gov. [John] Kasich," Trump said. "We’re really, really rocking and we expect we’ll have an amazing number of weeks.” 

For Trump, Tuesday’s victory ends several weeks of losses to Cruz at party conventions in states including Colorado and Wyoming.

Trump was routed in those contests, which test a campaign’s organizational strength.
The GOP front-runner has railed against the process, calling it “rigged” and accusing party leaders of seeking to steal the nomination from him.
He continued hammering that message on Tuesday night.
