PolitiFacting Marco Rubio's claim that Obama ran most negative campaign ever: Yep



PolitiFact: Florida Sen. Marco Rubio spoke to CNN on the state's primary day and predicted that the winner of Florida -- which turned mostlytrue.gifout to be Mitt Romney -- would likely be the nominee of the Republican Party.

On CNN, Rubio was asked about the many negative ads that ran during the campaign and if it was a preview of what was to come in the general election.

"I think that's been a part of every campaign," Rubio said. "Unfortunately, it's only gotten worse. No candidate in American history has ever run more negative ads than Barack Obama. I don't think that will change in 2012. Unfortunately people have to get used to it. I think voters see through that."

Did Obama earn the mantle of running the most negative ads in American history?
