The two remaining rivals of the Republican frontrunner have teamed up in the fight over delegates in the 2016 presidential race.
FOX's Tonya J. Powers has more:
Governor John Kasich says he will now be openly cooperating with Senator Ted Cruz's campaign to keep Donald Trump from getting the GOP presidential nomination.
Kasich says its a misconception that there are rules that would shut out a candidate in an open convention:
(Kasich) "Even if there were those kinds of rules, you could be nominated from the floor of the convention. Look, we're going to an open convention."
The Trump campaign released a statement early this morning calling the alliance a "horrible act of desperation":
(Trump) "You know, once I defeat them I like every one of them, while I'm fighting them I don't."
Five states will cast primary votes on Tuesday: Connecticut, Delaware, Rhode Island, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Trump leads recent polling in each of those.
