voters' choices narrow. today marco rubio made a campaign swing through northern nevada on a last minute bid for votes, still looking for his first win, but with renewed momentum following a second place finish in south carolina. in an obvious reference to donald trump and ted cruz, the florida senator told a crowd of several hundred at the peppermill, the party will lose if they nominate a candidate, a majority of republicans don't like. he argued that he was the candidate who could unite the party in an election he said was pivotal for the nation's future. rubio told the crowd president obama had set the country on a downhill track and he said this election was coming at a pivotal moment. rubio: "i don't care how much you think they're funny or how interesting they may sound, if we nominate someone that 40 to 50 percent of our party can't stand, we are going to lose. we are going to lose to hillary clinton or bernie sanders. we

will bring us together. and i will bring us together faster than anyone who's running right now." rubio: "if we lose this election we will have to explain to our kids why we inherited the greatest country in the world and they got something different. we still have time to get it right, but we don't have forever. that's the great challenge of this election and that's why i'm asking for your vote." rubio has been picking up endorsements from party regulars, including nevada senator dean heller and congressman mark amodei, both of whom appeared with him at today's rally. senator ted cruz is getting ready to speak to a crowd at the boys and girls club of truckee meadows. he's scheduled to start his rally in about half an hour. kolo 8 news now's catherine van will have all the highlights tonight at 11. this is not cruz's only stop in northern nevada, he'll have several more rallies tomorrow. he'll have a rally at the journey community church in fernley tomorrow morning. then a rally at the carson valley improvement club hall in minden. and his last scheduled stop will be at the brewery arts center in carson city. doctor ben carson was at piper's opera house in virginia city this

only, where his supporters listened to him talk about his tax plan, and the government's irresponsible fiscal policies. carson says he is still in the race at the encouragement of supporters. he admits he is soft spoken, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. "sometimes in the news people will say well carson is too soft, he's too nice and he'll never do anything because he just wants everyone to feel good...wrong." carson will be in las vegas tomorrow for a town hall prior to the caucuses gettng underway beginning at five in clark county. donald trump will be in sparks on tomorrow. he'll speak at a rally in the rose ballroom at the nugget casino resort at noon. doors open at 10 a-m. the event is free and open to the public, but registration is encouraged. for the latest information on where the presidential candidates will be, just go to kolo tv dot com.
