Voting has begun for Super Tuesday, part two. A crucial day in the race for the White House. Voters in five big states... Florida, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri and North Carolina... are heading to the polls for primary contests. NATS It's a must-win in Florida for Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio. If he loses his home state, it will likely mean an end for his campaign. SOUNDBITE: REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE MARCO RUBIO, SAYING: "Don't stay home. Make sure no one stays home." Same goes for Ohio Governor John Kasich who has signaled he would bow out of the race if he loses in his home state. SOUNDBITE: REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE JOHN KASICH, SAYING: "Give me a vote so I can continue to run for President of the United States." Polls show Kasich neck and neck in Ohio with GOP front-runner Donald Trump. SOUNDBITE: REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "Kasich cannot make America great again. Can't do it. He can't do it." If Trump wins in both Florida and Ohio, he would be close to locking up the Republican nomination. Texas Senator Ted Cruz is hoping for a win in Missouri and Illinois. NATS: Sanders campaigning On the Democratic side, polls show Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders gaining ground in the Midwest states of Ohio, Illinois, and Missouri. He's looking to pull off another upset against front-runner Hillary Clinton. SOUNDBITE: DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BERNIE SANDERS, SAYING: "Let us see this great state help lead the country into a political revolution." Clinton is expected to win in the delegate-rich states of Florida and North Carolina where she holds a big lead. SOUNDBITE: DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE HILLARY CLINTON, SAYING: "I hope to be your nominee and then I will wage a campaign that tries to put American interests first." A big day for candidates on both sides as voters turn out to have their say.
