The next GOP presidential debate could be a one-man show.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s spokesman says he won’t debate without Donald Trump onstage. Trump said earlier Wednesday he won’t be there.

John Weaver says, “we had hoped to contrast Gov. Kasich’s positive inclusive approach to problem solving with Trump’s campaign of division.”

Weaver adds: “If he changes his mind, we will be there.”

Trump said he’s committed to another event at the same time.

If they both skip, that would leave Texas Sen. Ted Cruz with a solo performance as he tries to consolidate support as the alternative to Trump.

No word yet from Cruz or Fox News, the host of the debate.
