Yesterday, faithful voters in Florida, Illinois, North Carolina, Ohio and Missouri took to the polls to show their preference in the ongoing presidential primary process. This primary comes just after the DC Primary and a little less than a week after the controversy over Donald Trump having to cancel a Chicago rally due to threats of violence.  Over the weekend, Marco Rubio won the DC Primary while John Kasich came in second. Shortly after 8PM Eastern Time, as the results in Florida were announced, Senator Marco Rubio announced that he was suspending his campaign. He is not currently seeking reelection of his senate seat. Earlier on Tuesday, Trump won the Republican caucus in the Northern Mariana Islands, which are located in the northwestern Pacific Ocean, for those of us who were unaware.
