ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio warned voters in Miami on Wednesday (March 9) about "dirty tricks" that could be carried out by other campaigns on primary day. "If anyone calls you and anyone tells you, 'oh, Marco Rubio is getting out,' you tell them you heard it from me, they are lying to you," Rubio said onstage during his campaign event. Rubio lags in delegates and momentum going into the Florida contest next Tuesday. The current front-runner, billionaire businessman Donald Trump, has 446 delegates, with Senator Ted Cruz of Texas second with 347 delegates, according to The New York Times. Trump could open a sizable delegate lead going into July's Republican Party nominating convention if he is able to win next Tuesday in Florida, Ohio, or Illinois, states that allot all their delegates to the winner.
