Video asserts Marco Rubio remains ‘Right for Florida’
Marco Rubio.

‘He actually walks the walk.’

Sen. Marco Rubio debuted a new campaign video for his re-election campaign Thursday, asserting that he remains the right person to represent the Sunshine State’s values in Washington.

The 33-second spot features six unidentified people lauding the job Rubio has done in office before closing on the bold statement, “Marco Rubio: Right for Florida.”

“We have a guy in Sen. Rubio who has always stood up for liberty and freedom,” one speaker says. “He is that champion, unlike anyone else.”

Another adds, “Sen. Rubio must continue in Washington because he represents us well, and he’s done (that) for the last 12 years.”

Rubio this November is likely to face his stiffest competition in years in third-term Democratic Rep. Val Demings. After a powerful round of first-quarter fundraising, Demings now matches the incumbent Republican with more than $30 million amassed this cycle.

Demings has also leaned on her 27-year career as a law enforcement officer, including a run as Orlando’s first female Police Chief, to shrug off claims Rubio has made that she is soft on crime and not a supporter of police.

The new ad, however, never mentions Demings.

“He’s against communism, he loves his country and he wants freedom,” a woman in the video says.

The next speaker says, “I think he’s good for Florida because he knows the issues down here in Florida.”

Another: “He supports Florida. He supports the United States of America.”

The last talking head says, “He actually walks the walk.”

As of 8:30 a.m. Friday, the video had just over 60 views on YouTube.

    If you believe Florida Senators and their political PACS should not accept Money from Russian Oligarchs, then Marco Rubio is not Right for Florida. Marco Rubio’s party leader believes in being friends with Vladimir Putin. Marco has not denounced that. The Blood of Ukrainians is on Marco Rubio’s hands also.

    At some point Val D being a “D” is going to have to support Biden’s policies. That is a tough hill for any Democrat this election cycle.
