those three states but feeling very confident about his chances. ted cruz has a big prize he's going after super tuesday, texas, his home state. just this morning he was endorsed by texas governor greg abbott, not a big surprise because he is his former boss, nonetheless, a big prize that could help cruz trying to overtake donald trump and marco rubio trying to overtake trump. the numbers are looking much more challenging for cruz and rubio than trump at this point. don't forget, after super tuesday, another big prize coming up, ohio and florida on the same day, march 15th. the big deal about that is those are winner take all states. if you don't do too well on super tuesday, always the possibility to make it up when ohio and florida vote. certainly, john kasich and marco rubio are hoping their home state may do just that.
