victory in the entire state for marco rubio, his home county, donald trump passes of 40% mark, so many people said he could not do that, he did a time, 45 point a time, 45.8%, win by 440,000 votes, that is the big story. no question about it, it's the story of the night and we saw donald trump beat marco rubio, big time! we also have a crew that was there to watch this play out and doubtless our george estevez -- jorge estevez down at mara largo , you saw the loser, marco rubio step aside. >>reporter: we sure did, couple hundred people saw this at fiu in the lobby, the senator from her own state of florida things supporters and his family and god. >> after tonight it is clear that we are on the right side, this year, we will not be on the winning side.
marco rubio expressing the need her proud of a couple of hundred of people in miami that were disappointed that he could not rise above what he called the spectacle. >> it's the only word that >> i'm in shock that america think that's okay to vote for trump. >> who will go home and reevaluate how we get someone who will best serve all americans.>>reporter: they did not blame rubio for doing everything he could even if it meant going negative against trump, rubio ended with a message of hope. >> god strengthen the people, may god strengthen the nation, may god strengthen the conservative movement, may god strengthen the republican party, a god strengthen our eventual nominee, and may god always bless and strengthen this great nation, the united states of america. >>reporter: rubio congratulated trump and said the republican party said now they need someone to not divide them and
palm beach were donald trump had a quinn tonight in florida. christopher heath was there for the entire victory speech, chris?>>chris: a much different upbeat mood here were donald trump addressed supporters, obviously of ignite for him. he went in florida and not in ohio. wins in illinois and north carolina and in a dogfight right now out in missouri. a lot for trump to talk about tonight, obviously the big win in florida is highlighting what has been a rather impressive 2 weeks for trump winning across the country in the north and the south. tonight with a striking a term of being the uniter in the party, talking about how the party needs to come together and asking party leaders, asking the various members of the republican party to get in line behind him and talking about how he had phone conversations with speaker of the house, paul ryan and mitch mcconnell saying he can unite
victory in november. >> we have to bring the party together, we have to bring it together.[applause] we have something happening that actually makes the republican party did you guess political story anywhere in the world. >>chris: if you look at the way trump won a cross-border trade mentioned every county with the exception of miami, it is impressive to see the voting numbers that have turned out, trump is saying he is the one driving the support and imploring the rest of the republican party to get in line behind him. we will have to wait and see if that happens and for now reporting live, christopher heath, channel 9. >> and winner take all in terms of the delegates and this doesn't come as a huge surprise and resume and quickly here to
very one-sided gop race and he at least feels woman to going forward. we have 10 online inker, vanessa echols and there could be a contested convention. >> if no one has enough delegates to win the nomination then contested and brokered and this is how these things would work . if no candidate has the 1237 delegates needed to win the nomination by the time the convention starts, it is a contested convention in the 2472 delegates to take their first boat and the candidate that wins the majority needed then becomes the nominee. sounds simple enough, but if there is no winner, there is a second ballot and this is when it becomes a brokered convention. >> in this case most of the delegates that are pledged to a
to vote for anyone on the ballot . it is called a brokered convention because they will be dealmaking going on as the campaign to switch. let's just say that that is not produce a winner, it goes on from there, it seems it would be unlikely that there have been some very unlikely things this political year. in a contested convention then the delegates vote by a secret ballot so he could pledge to vote for a candidate and then vote for someone else and there is no penalty. that is all in secret. greg? hillary clinton was looking for a clean desk clean sweep and did not get it and michael is with her campaign, it sounds like penton is turning her attention to the general election? >>michael: clinton was taking swipes at donald trump, especially for his more controversial opinions, but
winning 3 key states and it puts her on a solid footing to secure the democratic nomination. if we look at a rally from earlier tonight with a lot of supporters, when hillary took the stage her voice was pretty course probably from campaigning and you could tell she was pretty course, she will take double the delegates and it makes it pretty tough to catch up to her and allows her to start focusing on donald trump. >> protecting national security can never be an afterthought. our commander-in-chief has to be able to defend our country, not embarrassed that. that is some of the red meat that they got tonight and we have a lot of questions about the republican race and we seem to get answers on the democratic side, it was a
the money and support and his supporters are loyal. they will probably stay in the race but at this point in makes it difficult for him to catch up in terms of delegates, reporting live in west palm beach, michael, eyewitness news. bernie sanders addressed supporters in phoenix and instead of focusing on florida or ohio he is looking ahead to next week's primary and had an encouraging message for his supporters. >> the reason that we have to find all expectations is that we are doing something very radical in american politics, we are telling the truth. >> that was bernie sanders and he did get a win tonight and we will take a look at the delegates that are up for grabs, especially on the gop side. winner take all for the republicans and you can see that it is a little hard to do
99 delegates to go straight to donald trump and his total but donald trump was hoping for these 66 delegates for the republican side may now go to q & a, in terms of the delegate count it was not exactly what trump wanted but for those against him this was exactly what they could hope for and could he hold out the victory in ohio. maybe more meaningful than those delegates going in to this pile and the fact that they did not go through the 1237 to avoid the brokered convention. some central florida voters helped decide other areas, rusty johnson beat jim cells by a large margin and that is a different outcome from november were johnson only one by 17 votes, and marion county they approved a 1% sales tax for 4 years to fund public safety, capital needs and wrote
