Marco Rubio has exited the Republican presidential race having lost the Florida Primary to Donald Trump by more than 18 points.
As Rubio leaves the stage so does nearly all semblance of reason and sobriety in the Republican Party. It is remarkable that Republican voters see fit to crucify Rubio for trying to fix our convuluted immigration system, but Trump can have illegal immigrants work on his construction projects and these same people don’t bat an eyelash.
It would appear that a majority of Republicans don’t want a candidate who speaks in complete sentences, lives in the real world and puts forward a set of coherent conservative policies. Instead they want a demagogue who is full of easy answers and no way to pay for them. Chances are the people who will pay most dearly are the very people who support Trump the most. In which case, Republican voters will get the candidate they deserve.
I have a feeling however that this isn’t the last we’ve heard from Marco Rubio. Whether Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton is elected President, it may very well be left to Rubio to clean up their mess.
