Digital billboard planned for today in West Palm Beach.



Marco Rubio won't be at Donald Trump's West Palm Beach rally Thursday. But a digital billboard with his name on it will.

"Rubio is scared to be seen with Trump," says one of the messages that will be sent by American Bridge, a liberal super PAC.

The group isn't only targeting Trump's supporters with its anti-Rubio message. It's also sending a digital billboard to a Rubio event in Boca Raton.

"Hey Marco!" reads one of those messages. "Your buddy Donald Trump is half an hour away. Why won't you be on stage with him?"

Rubio said Tuesday he's standing by his Trump endorsement despite an "Access Hollywood" tape from 2005 showing Trump boasting about forcing himself on women. That was before several women came forward Wednesday to say Trump groped them without their consent.
