Three candidates left

The Republican primary is now down to three candidates:  Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich.  Florida Senator Marco Rubio dropped out of the race on Mar. 15 after he embarrassingly came in second in his home state.

Rubio wasn’t doing great in the primary race.  He was in third place behind Trump and Cruz, far behind.  But way ahead of Kasich, who only has 143 delegates out of the 1,237 needed to be the nominee.  It didn’t come as a surprise to many people that Rubio dropped out, especially after losing his home state and knowing he was behind in the polls leading up to Mar. 15.  Here’s a snippet of Rubio speaking about stepping down:

It was “not God’s plan” for him to run for president, according to Rubio.

Let’s see how much longer Kasich can hold on for.  At least the Ohio governor won his own home state.
