Donald Trump: ‘It’s over’ if I win Ohio and Florida

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump likened the presidential race to a boxing match Wednesday — saying that victories in next week’s Ohio and Florida primaries would give him the knockout blow necessary to capture the GOP nomination.

“It’s like with the fighters,” Trump told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “If you knock ’em out, nothing can happen.”

Trump said victories in Ohio and Florida would “pretty much” assure exits from Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

Recent polls have shown Trump leading in both of those states, which are set to vote Tuesday.

“I think if I win those two, I think it’s over,” Trump said.

He also offered rationale for his victory in the Michigan Republican primary, saying his economic message resonated with the state’s voters.

“Michigan has been stripped. You look at those empty factories all over the place, and nobody hits that message better than me,” Trump said.
