Kevin McCarthy: It’s a Two Person Race with Trump and Rubio

‘I think Cruz’s whole strategy of winning, he didn’t plan on Trump and when you look at going through the evangelical vote and others, he lost that’

HALPERIN: “...two-person race, but I — I just want to clarify with the leader, when you said it was a two-person race, are you saying that it’s Trump/Cruz or Trump/Rubio?”
MCCARTHY: “I see it more as Trump/Rubio. Because I think Cruz’s whole strategy of winning, he didn’t plan on Trump and when you look at going through the evangelical vote and others, he just lost that. [crosstalk] And the reason why I say that, though, Rubio stumbled in New Hampshire. And so, I didn’t know he was going to come back. That was actually a good win. Now, don’t take anything away from Donald getting all the delegates but Rubio coming back in South Carolina, I think that was big.“
SCARBOROUGH: “What state can he win? Rubio can’t even name a state he can win. What state can he win?”
MCCARTHY: “Well, I think that’s very difficult. That’s why advantage goes to Trump and momentum happens.” [crosstalk]
