Republican Race Turns Civil Ahead of Florida and Ohio

Republicans debated in Florida ahead of the state’s winner-take-all primary next week. Debates have become raucous events for the GOP, but the policy-focused debate led Republican frontrunner Donald Trump to call the debate “civil.” With over 300 delegates at stake on Tuesday, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Ohio Gov. John Kasich face crucial home state tests of their viability. Trump, who rolled out the endorsement of fomer candidate Ben Carson on Friday, answered questions about his public and private persona. In the Democratic race, Bernie Sanders is hoping to maintain momentum after an upset victory over Hillary Clinton in Michigan on Tuesday. We look at the critical delegate math on both sides.
