Ted Cruz and John Kasich released coordinated statements to announce they will stay out of each other's way in upcoming primaries in hopes of blocking Trump from winning the party's nomination. Kasich will focus on Oregon and New Mexico where he expected to do well while Cruz will turn his attention to Indiana.

Trump is expected to rack up more wins on Tuesday as five states in the Northeast hold primaries, including delegate-rich Pennsylvania.
