By now you’ve heard that it’s over for Marco.
I expected he would place nowhere “in the money”, and he did not.
The real 900lb Gorilla in the room, however, isn’t there. It’s what these primaries say about Cruz, who got trashed everywhere except where there was a very heavy evangelical presence, and even that wasn’t enough.
In Florida he got destroyed, winning only 17% of the vote (to Trump’s 46%)
He did his best in North Carolina and Missouri, both expected with heavy evangelical presence, but neither was enough to win. He got closest in Missouri, very, very close, but…. no cigar.
