(INDYSTAR) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich claimed victory Monday in a behind-the-scenes battle for Indiana's delegates, prompting Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump to cry foul.
Kasich's campaign said it has secured the support of a majority of Indiana's 57 delegates to the Republican National Convention, where their personal preference might ultimately decide the party's presidential nominee.
"We feel very good about the number of delegates who will support Governor Kasich on a second ballot," said Pete Seat, a consultant to Kasich's Indiana campaign. "Electability is an extremely important part of the nomination for the Indiana delegation. The whole point of this is to win the White House. Governor Kasich has the best shot of doing that."
