Marco Rubio Drops Out Of Race, Upsets ‘Establishment’

"A vote for Ted Cruz or a vote for John Kasich in Florida is a vote for Donald Trump. The only one who has a chance to beat Donald Trump in Florida is me. And any vote that doesn't go to me, in essence, is helping Donald Trump to win the 99 delegates that this state will award to the winner," Rubio addressed the voters of Florida.

So, Marco Rubio definitely didn’t expect that humiliating defeat in his home state. Donald Trump took all 99 delegates of Florida. Marco Rubio suspended his campaign after the confirmation of his loss. In his after defeat speech, Rubio said "It is not God's plan that I be president in 2016 or maybe ever." He urged the people to stand against the contentious politics of Trump. He didn’t mention Trump’s name, though. “I ask the American people, do not give into the fear, do not give into the frustration,” Rubio said a crowd of supporters in Miami. Addressing his supporter Rubio said “our disappointment tonight is not on you. It's on me.”

In the beginning, Florida’s winner-take-all policy was considered a blessing for Rubio but at the end of day, Florida’s winner-take-all policy was proved catastrophic for Rubio. His departure from the nomination race is a terrible blow for Republican ‘establishment.’ They openly supported him as the party candidate. He was proved dear in Florida only 6 years ago. But within this short period of time, Florida embraced another outsider as their new dear one. Rubio was depicted as the savior of Republican Party in 2013 by the Time. So, this party savior’s resignation from the race is pathetic. His overall performance in the primary race was dismal. He has only 164 delegates whereas the frontrunner Donald Trump already has more than half of the required delegates.

He declared to participate in anti-Trump movement and urged the supporters to get united against Trump who is ‘hijacking’ the Republican Party. Rubio’s resignation, however, inspired Kasich supporters who celebrated his Ohio victory. For Donald Trump, may be his resignation only means, ‘another rival out’.
