Who gets Rubio's delegates?

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Florida Senator Marco Rubio suspended his campaign after losing in his home state of Florida in Tuesday's election.

Now who gets his 168 delegates?.

Most of the delegates are free to support the candidate of their choice in the Republican National Convention.

That's unless Rubio tries to jump back in the race.

GOP rules require delegates vote for the candidate who won them on the first ballot at the convention.

However, most state parties release those delegates if their candidate is no longer running.

It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination for president.
