AP

Fox News reported Wednesday that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) had gone to bed as the results of the Tuesday Nevada caucuses were still rolling in.

Fox hosts cut to reporter John Roberts for an update on the Rubio campaign, which had announced Tuesday that it would not stay in Nevada.

“Nothing else tonight,” Roberts said. “The senator has gone to bed and has a lot of work to do between now and super Tuesday.”

Preliminary caucus results put Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in first place. Rubio and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) were battling for second and third places.
