Though Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are expected to carry Florida, worth watching Tuesday are two things.

One: Can Marco Rubio tie Trump in Duval County, or at least run a competitive second?

Two: Though assumptions are that Clinton will lead in vote totals Tuesday, how close will the Trump total be to Clinton’s?
