After New Hampshire, What’s Next For Bush & Rubio In South Carolina?
As part of our election coverage, SwingVote 16, we’re taking a closer look of the New Hampshire primary results for Florida’s own Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio.
Marco Rubio’s momentum through New Hampshire seemed to fizzle with a fifth-place win, while Jeb Bush saw a surge from poll numbers to finish fourth. The Florida-based candidates finished behind Donald Trump, John Kasich, and Ted Cruz.
