Texas Sen. Ted Cruz announces his withdrawal from the presidential campaign in Indianapolis, Indiana on May 3, 2016.

This week on The Ticket 2016: It's been just over a week since Ted Cruz dropped out of the Republican Presidential nomination race. He popped up over the weekend at the Kentucky Derby and headed back to work in the U.S. Senate. But what about his campaign staff? What's next for them? Ben Philpott talks with Republican consultant Deirdre Delisi about life after the party ends.

And in a follow-up to a podcast story on political domain name cyber-squatting, we'll hear from a guy who's trying to eliminate dot-com domain-name hostage-taking by pushing politicians to use a dot-Vote URL.
