Ted Cruz may not be completely out of the presidential race

Despite his recent loss in Indiana, Ted Cruz isn't ruling out a re-entry into the presidential race.

"The reason we suspended the race last week, it was Indiana's loss -- I didn't see a viable path to victory" Cruz said Tuesday on Glenn Beck's radio program while the two were discussing the possibility of Cruz winning Nebraska's Republican primary. "If that changes, we will respond accordingly."

But Cruz admitted that he's not "holding his breath." 

"My assumption is that will not happen," he said.

Nebraska and West Virginia are holding their primaries Tuesday, but with Donald Trump as the presumptive GOP nominee, it's not likely that Cruz will win either of those states.

But, just a month ago, Cruz was seen as a shoo-in in Nebraska. 

That wasn't the only interesting bit from Cruz's interview with Beck, though. 

The Texas senator also said he still refuses to back Trump, saying picking a candidate "is not a choice that we as voters have to make today."
