The campaign trail today just had crazy news as Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) told voters in Ohio to NOT vote for him… seriously!
Instead, Rubio and his team is encouraging Buckeye voters to support their Governor John Kasich, who is doing well in his home state’s polling.
Rubio and the Republican establishment are so desperate to defeat conservative businessman Donald J. Trump that he’s willing to go to extreme lengths.. Whoa!

Cruz’s campaign, after a lot of bluster about going all in in Florida admits it was all a head fake. They had one event scheduled for today with Sean Hannity in Orlando that was previously scheduled and will be nationally focused, not Florida focused. Then Cruz is bailing on Florida.
Cruz’s campaign takes down its Florida ads. The Cruz Super PACs follow suit.
Marco Rubio revs up his Florida presence and is nowhere to be found in Illinois, Missouri, and North Carolina.
The Cruz campaign redirects all its resources to those three states, with Cruz rallies, ad buys, GOTV etc.
Now Rubio’s spokesman goes on national television and says Rubio supporters should vote for John Kasich in Ohio.
Kasich is going all in in Ohio and ceding Illinois, Missouri, and North Carolina to Cruz. In fact, Kasich suddenly has no events in Illinois, and only one event in Pennsylvania after the Ohio primary.
In other words, Kasich is now only campaigning in Ohio; Rubio is only campaigning in Florida; and Cruz is avoiding events in Florida and Ohio.
It’s clear that there is some serious “smokey back room” deals going on among political elites to stop Trump at the last minute. But maybe they should have tried something sooner instead of waiting just days before critical primary elections.
What do you think about Marco Rubio supporting Kasich? Please leave us a comment (below) and tell us!
