Fox News and the Associated Press are projecting Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) the winner of the Minnesota Republican presidential caucuses.
The win was critical for the Rubio, who hadn’t won a single other contest on Tuesday. By 11 p.m. ET, Trump had racked up six Super Tuesday wins, with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) winning two states.
The only Midwestern Super Tuesday state was slated to be a wild card for the Republican field. According to TPM’s PollTracker Average, Trump is still polling with a more than 20 point lead nationally but had very few resources in the state.
Minnesota was projected as one of Rubio’s best chances for a Super Tuesday win, an important benchmark for his campaign to stay competitive in the race for the nomination.
