ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Senator Marco Rubio said he has no plans to quit the Presidential race, as he called on "anyone but Trump" voters to support him in the winner-take-all Florida primary on March 15. When asked by reporters in Florida about Donald Trump's call for Rubio to drop out of the race, the Republican Senator from Florida said, "of course he is, he is running against me." He also predicted that he will win the Florida primaries, as he raised doubts about anyone's ability to win enough support to be the clear presidential nominee for the Republican party. "This is going to be a long process," he said. "This is uncharted territory, no one, not even Donald Trump is on track to have 1,237 delegates," he said. "Donald Trump would literally have to win half the delegates remaining between now and the end of the his to be the nominee," he said. He called on voters whip do not want Trump to win to support Rubio. "Here is Florida it is very straightforward, a vote for John Kacich or a vote for Ted Cruz in Florida is a vote for Donald Trump. I am the only one who has any chance of beating Donald Trump in Florida," he said. "So, if you don't want Donald Trump to be the Republican nominee, you have to vote for Marco Rubio," he said. On Sunday, Rubio won Puerto Rico, giving the Florida senator his second win in the state-by-state nominating contest for the November election.
