Rubio, Cruz Have Strong Performances

Tuesday night marked the third GOP debate which was hosted by Fox Business Network.

According to critics, both Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Ted Cruz had strong performances and increased their voter appeal.

The Hill reports:

Rubio had strong moments on everything from education to the threat posed by Russian president Vladimir Putin, while also earning at least an honorable draw with Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) in an extended, heated exchange about military spending and budgetary prudence.

“I know that Rand is a committed isolationist. I’m not,” Rubio shot back at one point.

Cruz also interjected in that discussion, saying, to evident approval from the crowd: “You think defending this nation is expensive? Try not defending it.”

And the Texan also found a creative way to link two common Republican concerns — illegal immigration and the purported liberal bias of the media — when he suggested that coverage of border security would be much different if people entering the United States illegally held “journalism degrees” and were going to drive wages down in the news industry.
