Republican U.S. presidential candidate and businessman Donald Trump speaks to supporters following the results of the Indiana state primary at Trump Tower in Manhattan, New YorkBy Ginger Gibson and Alana Wise INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.

NBC News reported on Wednesday that Trump's last remaining challenger, Ohio Governor John Kasich, was suspending his campaign after his dismal third place finish in the Midwestern state. There was no immediate word on this from Kasich's campaign, but he canceled a news conference in the Washington area and planned to make a statement at 5 p.m. ET in Columbus, Ohio.
