Only two candidates are left in the race for the Republican nomination Wednesday morning. On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders pulled off an upset in Indiana.

Donald Trump says he's now looking towards facing Hillary Clinton in the general election after Tuesday night's victory. Trump's likely nomination became even more apparent following Ted Cruz's surprising exit from the race.

"We gave it everything we've got, but the voters chose another path," said Sen. Ted Cruz, (R) Presidential Candidate.

Meanwhile, John Kasich says he will stay in the race despite trailing Trump by nearly 900 delegates.

On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders is also refusing to back down after upsetting Hillary Clinton in Indiana.

"I am the strongest candidate to prevent Trump from becoming president," said Sen. Bernie Sanders, (D) Presidential Candidate

Despite Tuesday night's loss, Clinton still has 90 percent of the delegates needed to win the Democratic nomination.

The next primary contests are in Nebraska and West Virginia on May 10.
