TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (CBSMiami/AP) — Republican Carlos Beruff released his first attack ad against U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio – criticizing him for not supporting Donald Trump.
The developer will spend $1 million a week for at least two weeks on the ad that will air statewide beginning Wednesday.
Beruff is the only major Republican to stay in the race after Rubio decided at the last minute to seek a second term.
The ad begins with an announcer asking, “Why does Marco Rubio refuse to support Donald Trump?” It then questions whether it’s “sour grapes” over losing to Trump in Florida’spresidential primary.
The ad points out that Rubio doesn’t agree with Trump on immigration, including a temporary ban on Middle Eastern immigrants.
It ends with Beruff saying he does support Trump.
