The Indiana presidential primary election is Tuesday, and Republican frontrunner Donald Trump was fortunate enough to secure the endorsement of a Hoosier state icon — former Indiana University men’s basketball coach Bobby Knight.
Unfortunately for Trump, either he or someone with access to his verified Twitter account misspelled Knight’s name in a tweet Tuesday morning.
The tweet eventually was deleted and replaced with one that had the correct spelling of the legendary coach’s last name, but the original remained for a while.
Trump also is using a picture of him and Knight for his banner photo on Twitter. That one has the correct spelling of Knight, though.
Ted Cruz, Trump’s main challenger, received his own criticism in Indiana for calling a basketball hoop a “basketball ring.”
There are 57 delegates at stake on the GOP side Tuesday.
