This is what the political equivalent of hospice care looks like. Senator Rubio’s friends, supporters and aides use words like “miracle” to describe the likelihood of a victory here in his home state on Tuesday. They soldier on through sparsely attended rallies, insisting, Trump-like, that his crowds are larger than they appear.
His top donors, who gathered in Miami Beach for a two-day retreat planned as a victory party, are now contemplating a desperate Plan B: which candidate or which group they might instead pool their resources behind to stop Trump.
Despite pressure from conservative activists, the news media and rivals like Mr. Trump to bow out and avoid the humiliation of a home state loss, Rubio refuses to quit until the votes are tallied and he’s soundly thrashed in his home state. Clearly that is Rubio’s option. To date he’s won Minnesota, Washington DC, and Puerto Rico. He was likely to win Utah at one point but everything points to a Cruz victory there at this point.
“If things don’t go his way, it’s not his fault,” said Ralph Arza, who served with him in the legislature. “They are not voting against Marco Rubio.”
And still the elites don't get it…..
No, they're none too bright. They've had it their way and they have raped, pillaged and plundered and got away with it.
Discontent that started with the Tea Party is now much broader and they may be held to account. Or not? Up to the nation as a whole.
Lots of rice bowls in danger of being broken.
Which is why it appears that it was the GOP elites who started the rumor that Trump is a Nazi.
Rat Claw Rubio hasn't done too well, has he. Lots of wasted millions poured into that unsuccessful little pot.
Update: CNN shows Rubio trailing Cruz in Florida.
