Saturday night was not kind to Marco Rubio. The Florida senator, badly trailing Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, lost every state and even failed to pick up delegates in some of the contests.
Despite the dismal news, Rubio offered a rosy picture of the race going forward, especially in the winner-take-all Florida primary.
“We’re going to win Florida, and you’ll find out on March 15 how confident we are,” Rubio said, in Spanish, to supporters in San Juan, Puerto Rico, which holds its primary on Sunday. “Tonight we will have more delegates than we did last night,” Rubio promised. “This map only gets better for us.”
If Cruz and Kasich would drop out, Marco would have a lock on second place the rest of the way.
