Posted on 03/02/2016 12:19:53 PM PST by Enlightened1
On the Fox News Channel's Super Tuesday coverage, GOP presidential candidate Florida Senator Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% stated that fellow candidate Texas Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% had a "bad night" on Super Tuesday and wondered, if Cruz "cannot sweep on Super Tuesday...where in this country is he going to win?" While he would win Florida and "other winner take all states." Rubio added that he wouldn't get out even if he didn't win Florida and plans to campaign in all 50 states.
Rubio said, "I think the analysis has to be re-calibrated here. First of all, this is the proportional stage of the campaign. So, no one is taking home all of these delegates. Not even Ted Cruz in Texas, who, by the way, tonight was supposed to be Ted Cruz's big night. You never heard my campaign say that we were going clean house on Super Tuesday. ... He ended up winning his home state, and sharing delegates. And the neighboring state of Oklahoma, and sharing delegates."
He continued, "On the other hand, you look at Virginia, a state where we were down 20 points in the polls...we basically fought Donald Trump to a draw, despite having to share the ballot with a number people that probably took votes away, and we're going to leave there with as many delegates as he has. And we don't just have a significant number of delegates there, but in multiple states....

If all Rubio can win is the Minnesota caucus, where can he win?
Lol, Rubio, look who’s talking!
You could not even win Virginia, the state full of federal government workers who would love your big government spending
Even though Trump won Super Tuesday, Rubio really won Super Tuesday.
He did well in Virginia in counties adjacent to D.C. - not a good trend in an anti-establishment election cycle.
At this point, they’re aren’t worried about winning.
They don’t care what’s best for “We the People” at this point.
All Rubio and Cruz are concerned with is keeping the crony capitalist gravy train rolling for another term.
Even if Hillary wins, they will still have their spot at the trough will Americans suffer a Marxist hellhole.
Rubio, you only won Somali-land. Far as I am am concerned, ya both suck!
The Cuban Jukebox is way too happy and cocky for just his one consolation prize — the dodo state of Minnesomalia.
Golly...Sounds like he put on his big boy pants AND his big boy shoes.

Are YOU going to win New York, Marco?
Rubio yes but why continue pulling in Cruz to this at every turn? It’s akin to the liberal lie that Republicans are racist and we’ve been for the black man even when decades of in your face evidence says otherwise.
Cruz is, has been, always will be the first anti establishment conservative since Reagan. Sorry but those are the undeniable facts.
Um, Rubio, what did you win? Minnesota?
Cruz won Texas.
Trump won most everything else.
I see that as a tie.
If you are really anti-Trump, go away, Rubio. That will leave more votes for Cruz. If you are all about yourself, by all means, stick around. Trump will thank you.
/A Trumpster and a Cruzer — like them both for different reasons. Yes, it is possible.
Is Mr. Fancy Pants going to give another victory speech?
[Cruz is, has been, always will be the first anti establishment conservative since Reagan.]
Uh huh... tell me that again the moment Cruz teams up with Rubio to skirt the will of the people and the front runner they are electing.
Marco Rubio’s path to the nomination is almost impossible right now, yet he and his backers won’t be happy until Trump is nuked.
Cruz is laughing his head off right now. This is exactly where he wants to be.
He’s won more than you, Rube.
Gonna be sweet watching you lose Florida in two weeks.
Cruz wins in closed primaries.
Cruz is in desperation mode, as seen with that weird speech he gave the other night. Contrasted poorly with Trump’s gracious speech.
Cruz’s strongest day was supposed to be yesterday. From here on forward, Cruz will struggle to even beat Rubio.
