Marco Rubio: Ted Cruz is no purist



Marco Rubio offered some of his strongest criticism of Ted Cruz on Face the Nation, asserting Cruz left wiggle room on immigration so he could “leave the option of being for it in a general election.”

“I think when you spend your whole time telling people you are a clear talker and you say what you mean, and everyone else is a sellout, but you're the only purist, I think it is fair to say hold on a second. Here is where you have been in the past on some issues, and here is where you are now,” Rubio said.

Rubio also explain his ad that appeals to “all of us who feel out of place in our own country.”
