Where was this Marco Rubio in New Hampshire, Save Jerseyans?!
We’ll never know. Regular Save Jerseyans know that I’ve been counseling these guys – Christie, Cruz, Rubio, etc. – to take on Donald Trump directly for months.

Kudos to Rubio and Ted Cruz, too, for finally putting the conservative movement ahead of their consultants’ dated “control your lane” advice in Texas on Thursday night:

Rubio even followed up his debate night assault with an even more fiery Friday morning appearance on NBC’s The Today Show:

I have some guy go back and write a story about how when I was 18 I got arrested or cited, I should say, for drinking beer in a park after hours. He’s being sued for fraud, for defrauding people. Here’s a guy who had to pay a judgment for hiring Polish workers illegally to build Trump Towers.”
