Beruff releases new ad against Marco Rubio



With just two weeks to go before the GOP primary election, Carlos Beruff is continuing to take swings at Marco Rubio on television, releasing a new ad that features people who say they used to support Rubio but no longer do.

“He didn’t do what he said he was going to do,” one of six unidentified voters featured in the ad that points out Rubio missed votes in the Senate.

Beruff has spent more than $8 million on television ads since he jumped into the race in February, and about half of that has come since Rubio rejoined the Senate campaign. Beruff is self-funding the majority of his campaign. 

The new ad fits with a more aggressive posture he began taking earlier this month. In television ads Beruff had on cable stations around the state last week, he compared Rubio to former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist, saying both were "political opportunists."
