Donald Trump is picking up a major endorsement from basketball legend Bobby Knight, a huge win for the GOP front runner ahead of the Indiana Republican Presidential Primary.
According to The Hill:
“Legendary Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight will appear with GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Wednesday in Indianapolis.
Trump’s campaign on Monday announced that Knight is joining the billionaire for a campaign rally. The former Hoosiers coach will appear with Trump at the Indiana Farmers’ Coliseum that evening.
The event, which will take place a week before Indiana’s primary, was announced the day after Trump’s rivals, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, announced a new effort to block Trump from winning the GOP nomination.
Their strategy depends on Cruz defeating Trump in Indiana. Trump leads Cruz by over 6 points in the Hoosier State, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.”
