"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert last night roasted a John Kasich Super PAC's latest campaign ad, which Colbert called "the most optimistic ad I have ever seen."

After Tuesday's primary in Indiana, Kasich is the last person standing in opposition to Donald Trump in the GOP field. In other words, Trump will be the Republicans' nominee in July. And though Colbert taped the show before the Indiana results came in, the delegates were distributed on a winner-take-all basis, meaning neither Cruz nor Kasich saw any increase in their standing.

"Things are looking bleak for the Ohio governor," Colbert said. "Not only is he trailing Donald Trump and Ted Cruz in the delegate count, he's still behind Marco Rubio, who dropped out of the race five weeks ago."

"It's like the old saying," he added. "Quitters never win, but they still beat John Kasich."
