Rubio: Dem Debate Will Highlight ‘Race to the Left’
Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio claimed that he won’t watch the Democratic presidential debate, citing that it will be a contest over who is the most liberal.
Sadly, Rubio fails to remember that the Republican debate, besides the blatant conservative tones, was much the same.
“I think it’s a race to the left. All the candidates will see which one can out-liberal the other,” the Republican presidential candidate said in a Fox News interview Monday night.
“In essence, they want to do everything Barack Obama is doing, but even more of it. They want to expand the Obama agenda,” Rubio said.
The Hill reports:
Rubio has become the target of attacks from rivals Donald Trump and Jeb Bush after seeing his stock rise following the first two GOP debates in August and September.
The freshman senator is likely to be a target of Democratic candidates, too, when they take to the stage Tuesday night in Las Vegas.
“I doubt I’ll be watching. I’ve got a busy day ahead of me. I’m sure I’ll see the clips and the highlights,” Rubio said.
