Gowdy Cuts SC Ad for Rubio: ‘Democrats Fear Marco the Most’
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), voiced his support for Marco Rubio on Tuesday in a campaign ad, calling him one of the best candidates.
“I have spent my life fighting to enforce the rule of law and keep Americans safe,” Gowdy says in the ad. “And no one is stronger for America’s security than Marco Rubio.”
“Destroy ISIS. Protect our borders from all threats. Marco Rubio will be a commander in chief who brings back American strength,” he continues. “I’m Trey Gowdy — that’s why I support Marco Rubio and that’s why the Democrats fear Marco the most.”
The Hill reports:
Defense is an important issue for voters in South Carolina, which has a huge contingent of current and retired members of the military.
Gowdy, a former district attorney, is chairman of the select committee investigating the 2012 terror attacks on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. He’s been among Rubio’s most active surrogates in South Carolina ahead of Saturday’s primary.
A Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday found Rubio tied with Ted Cruz for second place in South Carolina, each taking 18 percent support. Donald Trump continues to hold a commanding lead over the field, with 35 percent.
