GOP frontrunner Donald Trump called for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) to get out of the race so Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) could go head to head.

“I think Marco Rubio had a very bad night,” the real estate mogul said to his supporters in West Palm Beach, Florida late Saturday night. “It’s time now that he drop out of the race.”

“I would love to take on Ted one on one because Ted can’t win New York. He can’t win New Jersey. He can’t win Pennsylvania. He can’t win California. I want Ted one on one,” Trump challenged.

Trump said he “really didn’t spend very much time” in Kansas and Maine, the two states Cruz won. However, Trump did congratulate Cruz on his wins.

“He should do well in Maine because its very close to Canada, lets face it,” Trump jabbed at the Texas Senator.

“The biggest story in all of politics…is the tremendous outpouring of voters coming into the Republican Party,” Trump told supporters at his press conference Saturday night.

“Millions and millions of people are coming in and voting,” he added. “What’s happening is a movement.”

Trump won Kentucky and Louisiana on Super Saturday, while Cruz won Maine and Kansas.
