ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) --VIDEO AS INCOMING-- STORY: Presidential candidate Gov. John Kasich said he still sees a chance to becoming the Republican nominee but said, "If I don't win, that's ok." "If Donald Trump goes to the convention short of the exact number he needs, he is not going to get picked," Kasich said at a campaign stop in Oregon. "He needs about 60 percent of the remaining delegates, is he going to get sixty percent? I don't think he will," he said. "If I don't win, that's ok," he said. "If I can change a life, if I can be a voice that is different than what we hear in the political circles today I will have had a victory," He said. what we hear On Tuesday Trump swept party nominating contests in five U.S. Northeastern states. The victories brought the New York billionaire closer to the 1,237 Republican National Convention delegates he needs to win the nomination at the July 18-21 event in Cleveland. The race has pivoted to Indiana's primary next Tuesday, which was shaping up to be Sen. Ted Cruz's best - and perhaps last - chance to hinder Trump's march to the nomination. If Cruz can win a large share of the Midwestern state's 57 delegates, it will boost the chances that Trump will not be able to clinch the nomination on the convention's first ballot. After that, many delegates will be free to turn to Cruz, or Kasich, or a dark-horse establishment candidate on a second or subsequent ballot. After Tuesday's voting, Trump had 954 delegates, Cruz had 562 and Kasich had 153, according to an Associated Press count that included unbound delegates free to support any candidate.
