Rubio hit on 'amnesty' in new ad from pro-Ted Cruz super PAC



A super PAC supporting Ted Cruz has a new ad highlighting Marco Rubio's role in the Gang of 8 immigration bill. It's the third ad from Courageous Conservatives PAC and comes as Rubio and Cruz have turned fire on each other. Last night, Rubio knocked Cruz for voting to put controls on the NSA data collection programs.

The ad will run on Iowa for a week, the group said.

Ad script: "When Marco Rubio teamed up with John McCain, Chuck Schumer, Lindsey Graham and Bob Menendez to push his Gang of Eight Amnesty scheme, he said he wanted to secure the border. But then Rubio voted against every border security amendment Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions proposed. Every one! It was part of the deal Rubio made with Obama -- no amendments, even on border security. Ted Cruz was only in the Senate a few weeks, but it was his leadership that stopped the Obama-Rubio Gang of Eight amnesty bill. Ted Cruz: Secure the border. No welfare for illegal aliens. No path to citizenship. Enforce, improve and strengthen current laws. Marco Rubio betrayed our trust, failed us and he’s done nothing since coming to Washington but push for amnesty. Ted Cruz for President. Now. Before it’s too late."
