Rubio on Trump: GOP Will Lose If We Nominate Someone Half Our Party Hates

Monday on the campaign trail in Reno, NV, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said if his opponent Donald Trump becomes the nominee, the GOP cannot win in November, because half of the Republican Party “hates” him.

Rubio said, “We can’t win if we nominate someone, if we nominate someone that half of the Republican Party hates. We are going to be fighting against each other all the way to November. I don’t care how much you may think they’re funny or how interesting they may sound. If we nominate someone that 40 to 50 percent of our party can’t stand, we are going to lose.”
