GOP Presidential candidate Marco Rubio drew fire Thursday night after abruptly canceling an appearance at a prominent conservative event…

According to Breitbart:

“Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) canceled his scheduled appearance at the Conservative Review Conference in South Carolina five minutes before he was slated to go on stage.

Conservative Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) harshly criticized Rubio on his amnesty positions right before the Florida Senator was supposed to go on stage.

“Marco Rubio will you raise your hand?” conference moderator Mark Levin said on stage at the conference after it became apparent that Rubio was not going to appear on stage. “Where is he?”

Rubio’s campaign offered an explanation. “FYI – Because of a delay in today’s schedule, Marco is unable to make the event below tonight.,,

“This is a final admission that Marco Rubio isn’t even going to try compete for the votes of conservatives in South Carolina or anywhere else. And who can blame him? Rubio isn’t a conservative,” said Rick Tyler, a communications adviser to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

“Instead Rubio and his campaign would rather hide behind their deceptive campaign tactics and liberal record on amnesty for illegals and voting to nominate John Kerry.”
