Rubio wins Puerto Rico primary

Rubio wins Puerto Rico primary

On paper, Marco Rubio would seem to be the most electable Republican candidate. He is young with the energy to match, speaks eloquently, comes from an immigrant background, and holds true to his Party’s principles. Ironically, in a lot of ways his story is very similar to Barack Obama’s, although obviously they differ quite a bit on policy. His potential for winning a general election has even created rumblings of the Hillary Clinton camp fearing him more than any Republican in the primaries.

 

In any other year, Rubio could have been a shoo-in to lock up the nomination. But as we’ve seen, 2016 has been anything but predictable. Donald Trump wasn’t taken seriously as a candidate at the start of his campaign, and the speculation was that he would run out of steam . . . until he didn’t. Suddenly, Trump looks to be the frontrunner, and a highly probable nominee.

 

Still, the primaries are not yet over. Rubio won Puerto Rico in a landslide with 73% of the vote. This gave him twenty delegates, which were badly needed at this stage of the campaign. More importantly, it’s a victory under his belt as the primary elections head to his home state of Florida. Rubio must win there if he has any shot at the nomination, and the Puerto Rico victory shows supporters that his campaign still has life. Trump is currently winning in Florida based on polling, but the gap has closed a bit in the last few weeks in favor of Rubio.
