Where Marco Rubio Wins Tonight

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Florida Sen. Marco Rubio has thrown the kitchen sink at frontrunner Donald Trump and he hasn’t won anything yet. Tonight on Super Tuesday Rubio must win somewhere or he will roll into his head to head showdown in Florida March 15th win a record of 0-15.

Tonight voters go to the polls in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, and Virginia. There will also be a GOP caucus in Alaska tonight. The states of Minnesota, Tennessee and Virginia are where Rubio has spent the majority of his time.

His first win could come in the always wildcard state of Minnesota where Rubio, Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz are all bunched together in a three man race. Tennessee is a long shot for Rubio as is Virginia but he hopes for at least one win and a number of second place finishes.

He needs for Trump to win in Texas in hopes of getting Cruz out of the race. Best-case scenario for Rubio is a win in Minnesota and Virginia, 9-second place finishes and a Cruz loss in Texas. That would at least get Cruz out of the race and set him up for his big showdown in Florida on March 15th
