Indianapolis, IN - It's "the day after."

Yep, the Indiana primary turned out to be a Republican blood-bath, ending with Donald Trump becoming the presumptive Republican nominee.

"We had a tremendous victory tonight- it was a tremendous victory," Trump told supporters in New York.

With the Hoosier defeat, Senator Ted Cruz finally called it a day.

"The voters chose another path," Cruz said in Indianapolis. "We are suspending our campaign."

Less than 24 hours later, Ohio Governor John Kasich also read the writing on the wall.

"Thank you and God bless," Kasich told his supporters in Ohio.

Now that it's over, some wounded Republicans are left to pick up what's left of the party.

So, how does Trump repair the fallout....especially after accusing Cruz's father of helping JFK's assassin?

"The man is utterly amoral," Cruz ranted to reporters on Tuesday morning. "Donald is a bully."

Despite the vicious exchange, Trump seemed to extend an olive branch to Cruz by Tuesday night.

Trump said of Cruz, "He is a tough, smart guy!"

So, could Cruz end up as Trump's running mate? Not likely.

Well, what about Kasich?

"I like John," Trump told CNN.

Many wonder if Marco Rubio or some other "Ghost of Republicans past" will end up on the ticket?

We'll have to stay tuned.

Meantime, Hillary Clinton appears to be in the driver's seat even after losing in Indiana, but don't tell that to Bernie.

"We have an uphill battle in front of us, but I think we have a path to a victory...though it is a narrow path," Senator Bernie Sanders predicted.

Meanwhile, for Trump, the party's not over, but there's one helluva clean-up job left to do!
