UPDATE: 8:40 p.m. EST — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio doesn't want to be vice president and regrets picking a fight with Donald Trump. "In terms of things that have to do with personal stuff, yeah, at the end of the day it's not something I'm entirely proud of. My kids were embarrassed by it, and if I had to do it again I wouldn't," Rubio said during a MSNBC town hall Wednesday night.
Candidates in the Republican presidential field are expected to canvass cable news airwaves with town hall appearances Wednesday evening while the Democrats meet for their second debate in four days. Those not interested in catching former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders on CNN can flip back and forth between Fox News and MSNBC to catch the remaining four GOP hopefuls in one-on-one Q&As.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, whose candidacy could end if he doesn’t come out victorious in the March 15 winner-takes-all primary in his state, is scheduled to sit down with “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd at 8 p.m. EST at Florida International University in Miami.

Ahead of Trump, Ohio Gov. John Kasich is scheduled to appear on Fox News with the host of “On the Record With Greta Van Susteren” from Chicago at 7 p.m. EST. Kasich is expected to take questions from Van Susteren, members of the live audience and viewers at home, presumably through social media.
