The long-simmering rivalry between Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio has boiled over and the two Florida Republicans are ramping up their attacks against each other.
Earlier this week Right to Rise, a Jeb Bush affiliated super PAC, announced they were preparing to spend $20 million on attack ads to prove that “Marco Rubio is unelectable.”
Rubio’s camp got out ahead of that threat with this ad, resurrecting past public speeches Jeb Bush gave supporting Marco Rubio – all recorded “Before the Phony Attacks.”
Even Lou Dobbs called the attack ad “devastating” for Bush when it aired shortly before the Fox Business’s GOP debate.
Will $20 million give Jeb an edge over his former protégé, or is Marco’s ability to deflect the attacks just more than Bush can handle? We will have to wait and see.
