Pro-Marco Rubio super PAC calls on Floridians to “stop Trump”

rubio, marco - prompter

A vote for anyone but Marco Rubio in Florida is a vote for Donald Trump.

That’s the message Conservative Solutions PAC, the super PAC backing Rubio, is sending in a new advertisement, called “Closest.”

“In Florida, a vote for Cruz or Kasich is a vote for Trump,” a man is heard saying in the 30-second spot.  “It’s time to stop Trump and elect a president we’ll be proud of, Marco Rubio. Florida, make it happen.”

Bloomberg Politics reported that outside groups and campaigns have committed to spending $9.2 million in ads in the Sunshine State leading up to the March 15 election. Conservative Solutions PAC is spending about $4.3 million, according to the report.

Rubio is trailing Trump in the polls in Florida, although the margin varies depending on the poll. Rubio leads Republican rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich in his home state.

The winner-take-all Republican primary is Tuesday.

    I am a Cruz supporter. However, just because I support Cruz does not make me “anti-Trump”. Marco Rubio is the new face of the country club elite Republican establishment, desperately trying to hold onto its power.

    ENOUGH ALREADY. You, Mitt, Obama, et al are DRIVING VOTERS LIKE ME TO TRUMP. I don’t care anymore. The country is already in the toilet. At this point, I welcome the lobbing of a grenade into the old establishment Republican party who has used the Average Joe voter to just fluff their own mattresses.

    Marco, I liked you. I had high hopes for you as one of your Florida constituents. YOU SOLD US OUT. You were wooed by the Washington Republican Country Club Elites.

    Just because I’m pro-Cruz DOESN’T MEAN I’M ANTI-TRUMP.
