Trump on stump (new pic)Donald Trump almost swept last night's primaries, a governor finally takes a state, and Marco Rubio drops out of the race for the White House – those were the highlights of a big night in politics.

The first domino to fall Trump's way was Florida. He took Marco Rubio's home state by 20 points. Rubio bowed to the inevitable and dropped out of the race. He was upbeat and reverent in his speech.

"And I use the words of King David because I remain grateful to God," Rubio stated. "Yours, Oh Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty – indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth."

Gary Bauer of American Values reacted to Rubio's comments: "I thought his speech was one of the finest speeches I've heard in American politics, and I quite frankly reject the idea that his political career is over."

Bauer adds that by winning his own state of Ohio, Governor John Kasich is keeping the race interesting. "Ohio and Florida were the two winner-take-all states – and by not winning both of them, [Trump] still has not closed the deal," adds the conservative commentator.

Still, on Tuesday night Donald Trump did everything short of wrapping up the nomination for the Republicans. Bauer says the feuding factions of the GOP need to come together.

"Unless the Republican Party is prepared to allow Hillary Clinton to become President of the United States, serious people representing all the factions are going to have to get into a room and hammer out some sort of a detente, some sort of an agreement, some sort of a compromise that can bring that party together," he advises.

And that, says Bauer, applies no matter who is the nominee.
