Marco Rubio is under fire for failing to do well on Super Tuesday. Rubio was confronted by CNN anchor Jake Tapper for being in “denial.”
According to The Hill:
“CNN anchor Jake Tapper late Tuesday asked Marco Rubio if he was in denial about his standing in the Republican presidential race.
“You’re talking about Virginia, and that’s another state [Republican presidential front-runner] Donald Trump won,” Tapper said during an interview with the Florida senator as Super Tuesday results rolled in. “I just wonder if there’s a certain amount of denial you’re in about this race.”
The tough questioning occurred before Rubio won Minnesota’s caucuses, his sole victory on Super Tuesday and in the presidential race so far.
Rubio said he remains focused on the contests following Super Tuesday, including his home state of Florida, which will hold a winner-take-all primary on March 15.”
