ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Following a day of campaigning, U.S. Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump made his final stop in Boca Raton, Florida, on Sunday (March 13), two days before the state's primary contest. "We've been given really a lot of credit," said Trump, referring to his canceled Chicago rally last week. "They're talking about how well we handled it. And they're talking about the fact that nobody got hurt, nobody got injured, everything went smooth, it was a nice easy breakup. So that's the way we have to have things go." On Friday night, thousands of protesters, many of them telling journalists they were supporters of Democrats Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton, showed up at the Chicago rally, forcing Trump to cancel the event and casting a shadow over his weekend rallies. Trump drew condemnation from his rivals. Trump is trying to cement his lead over his remaining Republican rivals - U.S. Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida, and Ohio Governor John Kasich - in five states that hold presidential nominating contests on Tuesday for Republicans and Democrats: Florida, Ohio, Illinois, North Carolina and Missouri. "I'm a better person than the people I'm running against... and I'm a better person than Hillary. Hillary is not good," said Trump, who proceeded to poke fun at rival Marco Rubio. "He's 'liddle'. L-I-D-D-L-E, liddle. Liddle. Liddle Marco. You know, we have to - you have to brand people a certain way when they're your opponents," said Trump. The four Republicans and Democrats Clinton and Sanders are vying to run in the Nov. 8 election to succeed Democratic President Barack Obama.
