The Cruz and Kasich campaigns are joining forces to prevent a Donald Trump nomination.

In an unexpected turn of events, Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich released statements late Sunday night indicating their intention to coordinate their resources in this endeavor, by each concentrating their campaigns on particular states.

The Texas senator’s statement, issued via his campaign manager Jeff Roe, said:

“Having Donald Trump at the top of the ticket in November would be a sure disaster for Republicans. Not only would Trump get blown out by Clinton or Sanders, but having him as our nominee would set the party back a generation. To ensure that we nominate a Republican who can unify the Republican Party and win in November, our campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico, and we would hope that allies of both campaigns would follow our lead. In other states holding their elections for the remainder of the primary season, our campaign will continue to compete vigorously to win.”


The Ohio governor’s statement was released on Twitter.

Their strategy of blocking Trump from gaining the 1,237 delegates he need to become the Republican presidential nominee may be an example of too little, too late.

It didn’t take the billionaire businessman long to fire back, using his medium of choice — Twitter.

Zeke Miller, political reporter for Time magazine, reported and observations:

During a Fox News town hall, Kasich seemed to be speaking of Trump with this statement.

“If you have sky-high negatives and you’re viewed as a divider you can’t win in Ohio,” he said. “And if you can’t win in Ohio, you can’t be president.”
