Rubio: We Knew This Would Be ‘Roughest Period’ Of The Campaign

March 5, 2016 10:15 p.m.

After winning none of the primary contests on Saturday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) downplayed his performance, saying the campaign anticipated this rough stretch of the presidential race.

During a press conference in Puerto Rico, which goes to the polls tomorrow, Rubio said the map “gets friendlier” for him on March 15, the day of his home state’s winner-take-all primary.

“We knew this would be the roughest period of the campaign, given the makeup of the electoral map,” Rubio said in the primarily Spanish language presser, as quoted by The Hill.

“There are clearly states in which some of my opponents do better than us because it fits the profile they’ve targeted. We understood that,” he also said.

Rubio has only won a single primary event, with a Super Tuesday victory in Minnesota.
