On Thursday, Rubio will join his three GOP contenders—Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich—on stage for the 12th Republican prime-time debate, hosted by CNN. The Republicans also will meet in Miami ahead of the upcoming Florida primary. Prior to voting on March 15, the District of Columbia and Guam will hold their GOP-nominating events on Saturday.
