Exclusive: Rubio Fires Back At DNC's 'Brown People' Slur

Today, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who is slated to give the speech presenting Mitt Romney on Thursday night at the Republican National Convention, fired back at Democratic National Convention chairman Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who said today that the Republican National Convention was racially pandering. “You can’t just trot out a brown face or a Spanish surname and expect people are going to vote for your party or your candidate,” Villaraigosa said.

When Breitbart News asked Rubio about Villaraigosa’s comments, he laughed. “Well,” he said, “these are all well qualified elected officials, mayors and governors and former Congresspeople and senators like me,” naming Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and Saratoga Springs Mayor and Congressional candidate Mia Love in particular.

When asked if he thought the Democratic Party was race-baiting during this election cycle, he simply stated, “They don’t want to have a serious debate.”
