Rubio Credits Sanders for VA Bill
Marco Rubio credited Bernie Sanders for his work on the VA bill at Thursday night’s GOP debate.
“When I’m president of the United States, if you work at the VA and you are not doing a good job, you will be fired from your job at the VA,” he added.
At Thursday’s debate, Rubio veered away from personal attacks and focused on a more policy-driven conversation.
The Florida senator is pinning all of his hopes on his home state as he seeks to prove that he is a viable alternative to Trump.
Rubio has insisted that he will not drop out prior to the March 15 contest but has acknowledged that he needs a victory in order to continue to the nomination.
If Rubio fails to win Florida, there will be heightened pressure for him to drop out.
Some recent polls show Donald Trump leading by double digits, while others find a tighter race between the front-runner and Rubio.
