LAS VEGAS (WTVD) -- Marco Rubio has finished fewer than 2,000 votes ahead of Ted Cruz in Nevada caucuses and a distant second behind Donald Trump.
Donald Trump said his front-running presidential campaign is "looking pretty good" after its Tuesday night victory.
"It was a great night," he told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America" today.
"We're looking pretty good, by any standard."
A few minutes later, Sen. Marco Rubio told "GMA" co-anchor Robin Roberts that he congratulates Trump on winning, adding, "Well, we always want to do better."
He said he feels "good about our second-place finish."
Rubio and Sen. Ted Cruz were locked in a tight race for second in the Nevada GOP caucuses Tuesday night but ABC News projected that Rubio would be second and Cruz third.
