ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) There was no time to waste for Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio, who the morning after 'Super Tuesday,' got out and voted for himself in Miami, in a place where he says his career took off. "It's an incredible privilege and honor to be able to vote for myself for president just a few blocks from where I grew up," he told reporters outside a voting location. The main challenge for Rubio of Florida and Texas Senator Ted Cruz is overcoming Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, and both Cruz and Rubio have said they were determined to remain in the race. Cruz, 45, won Texas and neighboring Oklahoma, as well as the Alaska caucuses, bolstering his argument that he had the best chance of stopping the New York billionaire. Rubio, the Republican establishment's favorite, was projected the winner in Minnesota, his first victory in the party's nominating contests. For Rubio, 44, it was a day of reckoning. His losses piled up after a week in which he labeled Trump a "con artist" and exchanged schoolyard taunts with the reality TV star. Now, the March 15 contest in Florida, his home state, looms over him as a must-win.
