138: The Trump Effect

May 5th, 2016

Episode 214 of 241 episodes

And then there was one. Following the Indiana primary earlier this week, Ted Cruz made the inevitable but shocking decision to suspended his presidential campaign. Less than 24-hours later, John Kasich followed suit. That makes real estate developer and reality tv star Donald Trump the presumptive Republican nominee. But the one remaining candidate for the GOP has divided the Republican party in two. This week on the podcast, we ask supporters on both sides what’s next for the GOP? On one side is Matt Lewis, a conservative commentator and senior contributor for The Daily Caller. On the other is South Carolina Lieutenant Governor Henry McMaster, one of Trump’s earliest and most outspoken supporters.
