MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — A day after part-time Palm Beach resident Donald Trump repeated a vulgar insult aimed at Ted Cruz, a man outside a Cruz appearance this afternoon hurled a profanity at the Texas senator.

Cruz, making a stop at the Red Arrow Diner, was targeted with a scatological epithet by a man outside the restaurant.

Cruz was unfazed.

“You see how friendly the Bernie Sanders supporters are, where they yell and curse — almost like some of the candidates,” Cruz said.

At a rally Monday night, Trump was accusing Cruz of not being a staunch enough advocate of waterboarding when he said a woman in the audience used a crude female anatomical term to describe Cruz.

Trump repeated the term, adding, with mock indignation, that it was “terrible, terrible.”

BEDFORD, New Hampshire — Florida frenemies Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio visited the same polling place about half an hour apart this morning to make late appeals to Granite State voters for today’s first-in-the-nation primary.

Bush has invested significant time in New Hampshire and hopes his heavy schedule of town hall events will bring him a strong showing that revives a campaign that’s been languishing in single digits in the polls.

“I love it,” Bush said of New Hampshire’s retail style of politics. “In fact, we’re taking it on the road. We’ll be doing it in South Carolina.”

After his sixth place finish in last week’s Iowa caucuses, many of Bush’s own supporters have said he needs a breakout performance here to remain viable. Bush dismissed that notion.

"You got my vote," this man told Rubio outside the polling place in Bedford, New Hampshire.

“It’s not do or die,” he told reporters. “We have a real organization in South Carolina, the best organization in Nevada, a nationwide campaign. The punditry class loves to try to settle it all but voters will get to do this, starting today. I’m excited about it.”

Bush’s bus rolled out of the parking lot shortly before Rubio’s bus arrived.

“I feel great, we have great energy, there’s a lot of great support so were looking forward to the results tonight and moving on to South Carolina,” said Rubio on his way into the school.

The liberal super PAC American Bridge 21st Century sent a man in a cardboard  robot costume to heckle Rubio after he repeated the same talking point about President Barack Obama four times during an exchange with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in Saturday night’s GOP debate.

“Keep the talking points coming. Don’t let Chris Christie rattle you. Keep the talking points coming, Marco, you’re the best,” the activist said.

Another man in a robot suit of silvery fabric was on hand but denied being part of any group.

Can New Hampshire put Jeb Bush’s campaign back on track?

At town hall meetings around the state, Bush seems more confident than the candidate who can appear awkward when he’s reading a speech or giving a TV interview.

Polls suggest Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio are in a clump of candidates, along with Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz,  who are vying for second place behind part-time Palm Beacher Donald Trump.

Hillary Clinton will take a break from the early primary states to make a public appearance in Palm Beach County next Monday, a campaign official said today.

Democrat Clinton is scheduled to attend a $1,000-and-up private fundraiser that day at the Palm Beach home of Elaine and Gerald Schuster, The Palm Beach Daily News has reported.

The time and location for her public event have not yet been announced.

Clinton narrowly edged Bernie Sanders in last week’s Iowa caucuses and trails Sanders in New Hampshire polls before Tuesday’s primary. She leads national Democratic polls and in Florida, which has a March 15 primary, Clinton held a 62-to-26 percent lead over Sanders in a Florida Atlantic University poll last month.

We made this gif to help explain Senate redistricting proposals

The Florida Legislature is in a special session right now to redraw maps for the state’s Senate districts.

But what does that mean to you?

Last week, Post reporter John Kennedy broke down the four Senate districts in Palm Beach County and how they could be affected by the proposals. (See links below.)

We made this gif to show the current South Florida Senate districts, and the six proposals now being considered by lawmakers:

As you can see, Palm Beach County would go from having four Senate districts to three under all six proposals.

You can review PDFs of the full state proposals here.
