Florida Senator Marco Rubio won one state in last night’s “Super Tuesday” primary: Minnesota. He lost his great (white?) hope: Virginia. Real estate mogul Donald Trump won Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia, racking-up 241 delegates (to Rubio’s 108). It now appears there’s only one way Republican voters can stop Donald Trump from clinching the presidential nomination (assuming they want to) . . .
That requires Rubio to drop out, leaving Senator Ted Cruz (224 delegates) as the #dumptrump candidate. (It would certainly help if Ohio governor John Kasich and Dr. Ben Carson followed suit). Will Rubio fall on his sword? Only if he loses Florida two weeks from now. And maybe not even then.
Will that be too late for Cruz? Watch this space. Meanwhile, keep in mind that Marco Rubio voted to ban legally owned and carried guns from city parks. While Rubio would be an infinitely better president than Hillary Clinton or any other Democrat of The People of the Gun, we may have (will have?) dodged a bullet. Yes?
