No, Sen. Marco Rubio didn’t actually die following the vote tally in Florida Tuesday, but reporters at his campaign headquarters noted that all of the oxygen was quickly sucked out of the room when the state was called for Donald Trump.
As expected, Trump easily took the winner-take-all state that was widely considered a must-win for Sen. Marco Rubio.Rubio emerged around 8:13 p.m. to congratulate Trump, to a chorus of loud boos from his supporters. “There’s nothing more you could have done,” Rubio told them.
Is there a road forward for Rubio after Florida?
Don’t bother. Rubio slipped into his concession speech that he’s suspending his campaign.
