Limbaugh Backs Cruz over Rubio

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh came out in support of Ted Cruz over Marco Rubio on Thursday.

“Marco Rubio was part of the Gang of Eight trying to secure amnesty and wishes he wasn’t. Ted Cruz never was and they’re trying to make it out like he was,” Limbaugh said. “At the end of the day when people go vote, people are gonna remember of the two it was Marco Rubio that was a member of the Gang of Eight and Ted Cruz that wasn’t.”

Cruz hotly denied that, and said he “led the fight against his legalization and amnesty.”

The dispute continued after the debate, with both sides trading accusations and counteraccusations about who was right.

On Thursday, Cruz said Rubio was making “silly assertions” about his immigration record.

“Let’s have a moment of simple clarity: I oppose amnesty. I oppose citizenship. I oppose legalization,” he said at an event in Las Vegas. “I always have and I always will, and I challenge every other Republican candidate to say the same thing or, if not, to stop making silly assertions that their records and my records on immigration are the same. It is demonstrably false.”
