(The Hill) Presidential hopeful Marco Rubio is downplaying his perfomance in the four states that held GOP caucuses or primaries on Saturday, saying that he had had long known “this would be the roughest period of the campaign.”
Speaking primarily in Spanish at a press conference in Puerto Rico, where voters will head to the polls on Sunday, the Florida senator noted that the contests in Kansas, Maine, Kentucky and Louisiana are proportional, saying he’ll leave them with more delegates than he started with.
Rubio is eyeing his home state, which will vote on March 15, as the turning point for his campaign. There are 99 delegates up for grabs in that winner-take-all contest, although front-runner Donald Trump leads in the polls.
