Marco Rubio Drops Out Of Republican Race After Stinging Loss In His Native Florida, Calls Out Politicians Preying On ‘Anger And Fear’

Marco Rubio has dropped out of the Republican race on Tuesday night after a difficult loss in his native Florida, delivering a speech that decried the politics of resentment used by opponent Donald Trump and possibly setting up a longer political future for the Florida Senator.

Donald Trump took the winner-take-all contest in Florida, notching 46 percent of the vote to Rubio’s 27 percent. Polls had shown that Rubio, Florida’s junior Senator, was trailing Trump by more than 10 points going into Tuesday’s primary voting.
