Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have virtually the same message after a close finish in Saturday's South Carolina primary: I'm the most electable.

The two senators, who completed for second place with Rubio coming out slightly ahead, each told CNN's Jake Tapper that they're best poised to beat Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders in the general election. Both said they are going to pick up more GOP primary voters as other candidates drop out.

"We can't lose this election," Rubio said on the program "State of the Union," Sunday morning. "That's what's going to drive voters from here on out."
