The super PACs supporting Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's presidential campaign have canceled plans to run anti-Marco Rubio ads in his home state of Florida, CNN reports.

"We're no longer doing anti-Rubio ads in Florida, because it appears he can lose Florida all by himself," Kellyanne Conway, president of Keep the Promise, said. "He doesn't need our help."

Keep the Promise is the umbrella of the super PACs supporting Cruz, and it plans to spend $4.1 million in four other states voting Tuesday: Missouri, Illinois, Ohio and North Carolina.

But Rubio is polling about 20 points behind front-runner Donald Trump in his home state, so Keep the Promise said it saw no reason to bother spending money there.

Rubio is making a last-ditch effort in his home state, hoping to capture the state's 99 winner-take-all delegates to breathe life back into his flagging campaign. But news reports all week have suggested donors and some advisers are urging him to drop out so his supporters can vote for Cruz and avoid handing the nomination to businessman Donald Trump.
