Rubio camp: Crist pulls his TV ads

From NBC's Mark Murray
The Rubio campaign is emailing reporters that Charlie Crist has pulled his TV ads. Writes Adam Smith of the St. Pete Times:

The Marco Rubio campaign says Charlie Crist has halted all its TV advertising in the Orlando and Tampa Bay markets where the anti-Rubio spots were airing. That's presumably a sign that Crist has decided to marshal his resources for later or perhaps drop out altogether.

Smith also covers Sen. George LeMieux's (R) interview today on "Daily Rundown" with Chuck Todd and Savannah Guthrie:

"I have every reason to believe that Charlie Crist is running as a Republican and this independent thing will not happen," LeMieux said.
