Nebraska was a week late.
It appeared Nebraska Republicans would have a voice in the presidential race, until tonight.
United States Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas dropped out of the presidential race after losing badly to New York businessman Donald Trump in the Indiana primary. Trump becomes the presumptive Republican nominee.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich remains in the race, though he poses no real challenge to Trump.
The Republican presidential field once boasted 16 candidates. Trump seized the lead early and never let go.
The Nebraska Republican Party holds its primary next Tuesday. It appeared it would play a role in the race, even though it came late in the process. Cruz had hoped to win in Indiana, then pick up some momentum in Nebraska to block Trump from gaining the necessary 1,237 delegates to win the nomination, leading to an uncertain outcome at the party convention in Cleveland later in the year.
Cruz had scheduled a campaign stop in Nebraska. He was scheduled to hold a noon rally Wednesday at the Embassy Suites in downtown Lincoln.
