WASHINGTON -- John Kasich will end his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, making Donald Trump the presumptive Republican nominee.

The Ohio governor will announce his decision in a statement from his home state Wednesday at 2 p.m. Pacific time.

Kasich's decision to suspend his campaign comes after he failed to convert a win in his home state primary into momentum in the chaotic GOP campaign.

The move comes a day after one of his only remaining rivals, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, announced that he was suspending his campaign.
