Rubio out...

Marco Rubio - Florida - Drops out

Marco Rubio is dropping out of the presidential race after losing the Florida primary to Donald Trump and failing to unite the Republican establishment against the billionaire front-runner.
"We live in a republic and our voters make these decisions," Rubio said in Miami Tuesday night as his supporters booed Trump's victory.
His speech was a thinly veiled rebuke of Trump's campaign tactics, as he warned that it would have been easier for him to exploit the anger and anxiety driving the race. He warned that the politics of division were going to leave America a "fractured nation."
"America is in the middle of a real political storm, a real tsunami and we should have seen this coming," Rubio said.
"While we are on the right side," he said," this year, we will not be on the winning side."
Rubio, the 44-year-old first-term senator, had positioned himself as the only person who could stop Trump, and had gone on the attack, memorably bringing up the size of the Trump's hands during a campaign rally and at a presidential debate.
His campaign slogan was "a new American century" -- as he tried to send the message that America needed a new generation of leadership that could deal with the challenges ahead. It was also a way to spin his relative youth, and short time in the U.S. Senate as an advantage.

I live in Jacksonville, Fl. I donated and voted for him for Senate. Upon arrival in Washington, he immediately turned out to be a complete liar. What joy I have seeing him destroyed in Florida. He is done in Florida politically. To bad he will now get to go make millions peddling influence.
