Donald Trump in Palm Beach: 'This has been an amazing' Super Tuesday
UPDATE: With an introduction from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Donald Trump took the stage Tuesday night at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach.
"This has been an amazing evening already," Trump said of his Super Tuesday wins.
"We're gonna spend a lot of time in Florida," Trump said, adding that he's making big investments in Florida and Virginia.
Trump promised to stop companies from moving to Mexico, along with creating jobs in the U.S.
"We are losing so much. We can't let it happen," Trump said.
He also touted his campaign as helping "expand the Republican party" — because, he said, he's drawing people to the polls who otherwise may not have voted or were registered to vote as Democrats.
When asked about whether or not he had been "equivocal" about hate groups endorsing his campaign, Trump said he has "disavowed" the KKK (read more about that here) several times at campaign appearances, on social media and on TV appearances.
When asked if Florida Gov. Rick Scott would endorse him, Trump said he did not know who Scott would endorse.
EARLIER STORY: Just before 7 p.m. Tuesday, with polls set to start closing
across several Super Tuesday states, at the Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, reporters and other media, having worked their way through the usual security checks, waited in a large conference room.
Dozens of cameras framed the room, flanked at one end with a stage lined with U.S. flags. Cords snaked across the floor. An official provided microphone sound checks. And in a practice to which bored and desperate reporters sometimes descend, they were taking pictures of each other taking pictures of each other.
The only news during the long wait: news reports about early returns from Super Tuesday states. And an email from Trump's campaign just before 8 p.m. saying he'd be holding a rally Saturday at the University of Central Florida, near Orlando.
