Marco Rubio Suspends His Presidential Campaign (Video)
MIAMI — Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, who ran for president offering his youthful optimism and Cuban-American heritage as the embodiment of a new and more diverse generation of Republican leadership, but ultimately failed to galvanize voters in a much darker mood, said on Tuesday that he was suspending his presidential campaign.
Mr. Rubio made the announcement during a speech at his campaign headquarters in Miami after losing his home state by a large margin to Donald J. Trump.
Mr. Rubio hushed the boos from the audience when he congratulated Mr. Trump.
“No, no, no,” he said, interrupting the jeers. “Guys, we live in a republic and our voters make this decision. We respect this.” More
