Popular radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh says GOP Presidential hopeful Marco Rubio is no RINO, he’s a real conservative.
According to The Hill:
“Rush Limbaugh defended Marco Rubio on Tuesday as a “full-throated conservative” after the Florida senator scored a strong third-place finish in the Iowa caucus behind anti-establishment darlings Ted Cruz and Donald Trump.
Cruz called his victory a win for grass-roots conservatives, and, during his daily radio program, Limbaugh blasted media coverage describing Rubio as an establishment champion.
“I don’t like this idea that Marco Rubio is all of a sudden being labeled as an establishment candidate,” Limbaugh said, acknowledging Rubio’s bipartisan “baggage” of the 2013 Senate bill on immigration reform.
“Marco Rubio is no moderate, Republican centrist,” Limbaugh said. “I don’t see Marco Rubio as anything other than a legitimate, full-throated conservative. Nobody’s pure, and nobody is ever free of making mistakes,” the hard-right host added.”
