Marco Rubio Wins Puerto Rico Republican Primary, NBC News Projects
by LEIGH ANN CALDWELL
Another day another primary. This time it was in Puerto Rico where residents of the tiny island chose Marco Rubio for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination.
Marco Rubio had a commanding lead with about 30 percent of precincts reporting, taking 74 percent of the vote. Donald Trump in second place in the teens, while Ted Cruz was barely touching double digits.
It’s kind of interesting how the redoubt of Republican Establishmentarian Orthodoxy turns out to be … Puerto Rico.
The geography looks favorable for Rubio with upcoming primaries/caucuses next Saturday in the District of Columbia and Guam, followed by the Northern Marianas Trench, Guantanamo Bay, Colombia, Turks & Caicos Islands, the Republic of Pirates, the Bermuda Triangle, the Biltmore Hotel, the Bilderberg Hotel, Davos, Monaco, Macau, Sun City in Lesotho, Georgia (Rubio looks strong in Tbilisi), the Golan Heights, the Gulen fortified compound in the Poconos, Abbottabad, the Emerald City of Baghdad, Eduardo Saverin’s penthouse in Singapore, the poop deck of that Argentine battleship Paul Singer repossessed, the David Geffen / Larry Ellison superyacht somewhere in international waters, The Swarm, Thunderdome, Dick Cheney’s undisclosed location, Norman Braman’s hollowed-out volcano command post and Kia dealership, and, finally, a super-primary for all U.S. ex-citizens who have relocated to countries that don’t have extradition treaties with the U.S.
It all adds up to Marcomentum!
(There is, however, some concern at Rubio HQ [Cabana #7 next to the Biltmore pool] that if given a free vote, the sentimental favorite of the denizens of these diverse locations would be Donald Trump.)
