It’s 75f, sunny, with 22mph winds in lovely Miami, Fla. Here are a few political headlines:
Following a rally in Jupiter, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, pulled Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields towards the ground when she asked The Donald his position on affirmative action,
I wasn’t called upon to ask a question during the televised press conference, but afterwards Trump wandered around, stopping at every reporter to take their questions. When he approached me, I asked him about his view on an aspect of affirmative action.
Trump acknowledged the question, but before he could answer I was jolted backwards. Someone had grabbed me tightly by the arm and yanked me down. I almost fell to the ground, but was able to maintain my balance. Nonetheless, I was shaken.
The Washington Post’s Ben Terris immediately remarked that it was Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who aggressively tried to pull me to the ground. I quickly turned around and saw Lewandowski and Trump exiting the building together. No apology. No explanation for why he did this.
Lewandowski should be fired, right now.
Marco Rubio held a rally in Hialeah to a mostly empty stadium,

Ted Cruz’s rally downtown was announced the day before and it was full to capacity. Carly Fiorina announced her endorsement
Mark Levin endorsed Cruz, too.
Bernie and Hillary took turns pandering to the Univision audience at Miami-Dade college, in a debate that featured pro-illegal immigration/open borders advocate Jorge Ramos, whose daughter works for the Hillary campaign. I have written in the past how Univision is not the way for the GOP to outreach Latinos. Holding a debate where the moderators won’t speak English does not sit well by me, either.
The Cruz South Florida Campaign is holding a pre-debate rally Thursday, March 10th @ 5pm
Bank United Center, University of Miami, 1245 Sauer Drive, Coral Gables, Fl. 33146. They’ll live-stream the GOP debate itself.
The Republican debate is scheduled to start at 8pm Eastern.
