Group tones down use of Marco Rubio in pro-immigration reform ads



Americans for a Conservative Direction, the group funded by Mark Zuckerberg and others in the tech industry, has a new TV ad backing immigration reform. But unlike an earlier one that prominently featured Sen. Marco Rubio, this one has only a fleeting shot of the Florida Republican.
