New Jeb Bush web ad assails Marco Rubio’s lack of accomplishments

Picking up on the embarrassing appearance of Marco Rubio surrogate Rick Santorum on “Morning Joe” earlier this week, the Jeb Bush campaign released a new web ad on Saturday accusing Florida’s junior senator of having zero accomplishments in his quest for the Republican nomination for president.

Bush’s campaign purchased ads on Internet search terms related to Rubio’s accomplishments, which now directs searchers to an “error page” placed on Bush’s campaign site that tells them Rubio’s accomplishments are “not found.” 

The ad is the latest hit that Bush or his super PAC has put on his alleged good friend, who the Bush team has determined they must stop to aid their own struggling candidacy.

Though Bush is pushing hard for a breakthrough in New Hampshire, recent polls indicate that it’s Rubio’s stock that’s rising.

The second half of the ad extols Bush’s accomplishments.
