In an interview with WDBO News Talk Radio 96.5 FM, [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore] stated that he will not drop out of the presidential race, even if he doesn’t win the Florida primary Tuesday.

“Tomorrow our plan is to be in Utah campaigning irrespective of tonight,” he explained, according to BuzzFeed. “It would be a lot better to go to Utah being the winner of the Florida primary. It’ll give us a tremendous amount of momentum. It’ll give us 99 delegates. And that’s the way we want to do it tonight.”

“All these polls are crazy. They’re out of control. They’re way out of wack,” Rubio said. “I can’t guarantee a win tonight. I’m telling you, we expect to win tonight, but we are not 20 points behind. I mean, that’s absurd.”

Earlier in the interview, Rubio stated he still plans on supporting Trump if he wins the nomination, even though he thinks “many of things he’s doing and has done are damaging to the conservative movement.”


Rubio predicted last Tuesday that the winner of the Florida primary will be the Republican nominee.
