In his concession speech, 44-year-old Rubio, who came in second place, but well behind Trump in the primary on Tuesday, told supporters that he had "endeavored over the last 11 months to bridge this divide in our party. While we are on the right side this year, we will not be on the winning side."

With Rubio out, that leaves three Republicans running for president: front-runner Trump, followed by Ted Cruz and John Kasich.
