Kasich might as well be a de facto member of the Trump team. The Ohio governor has been mathematically eliminated from contention for 1,237 delegates, but, after spending the early part of the primaries as an anti-Rubio spoiler, is now set to be the anti-Cruz spoiler.

Sean Trende of RealClearPolitics crunched the numbers and found that with Kasich in the race, Trump gets to 1,237 and without Kasich in the race, Trump falls short. Since Kasich’s only path is a contested convention, this makes his campaign, on top of everything else, a massive self-contradiction.
