MIAMI, Fla. – Sen. Marco Rubio told supporters Tuesday night he still has a lot of fight left in him when he emerged at a rally for his presidential run.

Rubio told the crowd he has his eyes set on the primaries in his home state of Florida, which are scheduled for March 15.

"I have traveled this country now, and I am so glad to be back," he told the crowd. "Because there is no place in America that understands the American dream better than this community and this great state of Florida."

Supporters started gathering at 6 p.m. and waited until 9 p.m. for Rubio to take the stage.

He was likely watching election results come in for Super Tuesday, in which primary elections are held in 12 states. 

He spoke for approximately 15 minutes.

"Trump may be the leader right now winning all these delegates, but today people are going to realize once we sweep Florida and we take Florida, people are going to realize who the real leader is -- and that's Marco Rubio," supporter Alex Antelo told News 6.

Cruz did not respond to calls by Trump and Texas Senator Ted Cruz to drop out of the race.

Instead, Rubio said he's ready to win Florida's delegates.​
