“You believed in me when others didn’t think this night would be possible, when perhaps you were lost in the daily narrative, when some suggested that perhaps it was time to step aside.  You believed in me.”

Rubio congratulated Republican winner Senator Ted Cruz and says he has tremendous admiration for Governor Mike Huckabee, who suspended his campaign last night.
