Republican Rubio seeks boost in Nevada, but Trump dominates polls

February 23, 2016 13:13

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is looking to outpoll rival Ted Cruz in Nevada's caucus on Tuesday to help bolster his position as the establishment favorite for his party's nomination for the Nov. 8 election.

Looming over the tight race between the two first-term Cuban-American US senators is Republican front-runner Donald Trump, the billionaire businessman who has won two of the first three state nominating contests and is expected to dominate the field in Nevada.

With Trump, a blunt-spoken political outsider, commanding a double-digit lead in a handful of Nevada polls, political strategists in the state said Rubio and Cruz were both aiming lower, each hoping for a clear win over the other that could propel them through the busy voting month of March.
