John Kasich will suspend his presidential campaign Wednesday, according to an advisor, becoming the last Republican candidate to exit and leave Donald Trump on a glidepath to the GOP nomination.

Kasich, the Ohio governor, had pledged to continue campaigning as a Trump alternative who could deny the billionaire needed delegates.

But on Wednesday, he canceled a news conference in Washington and planned an announcement for later in the day in Columbus, Ohio, to drop out.
