Senator Rand Paul pulled no punches with fellow GOP Presidential candidate Marco Rubio Tuesday night during the CNN debate in Las Vegas, blasting the Florida Senator for strongly supporting a controversial immigration bill pushed by Chuck Schumer and President Obama.
Popular radio host Laura Ingraham said Paul “killed” it and was “100% correct.”
According to Politico:
Rand Paul swung hard Tuesday at his Senate colleague Marco Rubio, accusing his steadily climbing GOP primary rival of siding with liberals on border security.
“He is the one for an open border that is leaving us defenseless,” Paul said during the Republican presidential debate. “Marco has more of an allegiance to Chuck Schumer and to the liberals than he does to conservative policy.”
Rubio hit back, arguing that he simply opposed a bill that would’ve blocked tourism indiscriminately rather than focusing on security threats and he accused Paul of opposing tools for the intelligence community to root out terrorism.”
