Sen. Marco Rubio’s campaign didn’t take long to launch a new video mocking former Florida governor Jeb Bush for being ready to serve as president.
The campaign features footage of Bush praising Rubio admitting that he is “a huge Marco fan” calling him “the most articulate conservative on the scene today” and that he was looking forward to him running for president.
Rubio has reacted quickly to counter suggestions from the Bush team that he is not experienced enough or too pro-life to serve as president.
In an email to supporters, campaign manager Terry Sullivan urged donors to help fight Bush’s attacks.
“Jeb’s plan is to spend $20 million dollars to ‘damage Mr. Rubio’s reputation,’” Sullivan wrote. “Not just talk about how they differ on the issues but to actively try to destroy Marco’s reputation. And they’re bragging about that? How is that the kind of ‘joyful’ campaign that Jeb claimed he wanted to run?!?!”
