DES MOINES, Iowa: Texas Senator Ted Cruz was victorious in the first Republican nomination contest of the 2016 White House race, but there was another big winner in Iowa Monday night: Florida Senator Marco Rubio and the Republican establishment.Monday, that person was Rubio, who finished a hair behind Trump and only a few points behind Cruz.Rubio's night shocked Iowa political observers like Robinson, who had predicted Rubio would wind up far behind Trump and Cruz, with perhaps around 15-18 percent of the vote.According to election returns, Rubio swamped both Cruz and Trump in Iowa's urban areas – Des Moines, Iowa City, Davenport – suggesting that he could prosper when the Republican race progresses to denser, more populated states such as Florida and Ohio.
