Up to now Rubio has avoided much of the negative campaign tactics we saw in earlier contests. That time is over. In Thursday night's debate Rubio battled with Cruz to see which candidate could do the better job of attacking Donald Trump. Like many of their election contests it was a close contest but I'd have to give the nod to Rubio. He was like a dog with a bone last night and just would not let it go when attacking and goading Trump.
Rubio attacked Trump for being weak in support of Israel, for hiring foreign workers to build Trump Tower and running a fake university. But all that pales in comparison to what he said at a rally in Dallas on Friday morning. The first few minutes of this clip are pure dynamite:
Rubio adds that the media is "pulling it's punches on Trump" because they know he'll be weak in a matchup with Hillary. And like McCain before him, the media will turn on Trump with relish once he's the nominee!
