National Journal writes that the national security argument between two senators reaches from Las Vegas to New Hampshire:
Marco Rubio on Wednesday picked up his feud with rival GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz where he’d left it at Tuesday night’s GOP debate, telling some 250 supporters that he was amazed that “people” in his own party can think the way they do about national security.
“It makes no sense that people in our own party, the party of Reagan, the party of strong national defense, have lined up to support these sorts of things,” he said about reductions in defense spending.
“People like to talk about, ‘I made this promise, that promise, the other promise,’” he said later. “Let me tell you the most important promise someone running for president must always make. And that is: I will wake up every day, and spend every second, minute, hour, day, month, and year in the presidency doing everything I can to keep you safe.”
By “people,” of course, Rubio meant Cruz, who at the Las Vegas debate said he voted against a defense authorization bill because of a campaign promise in Texas to vote against any bill that allows the administration to hold U.S. citizens indefinitely without “due process.”
