Rubio pressed on why he doesn't go after Trump



Marco Rubio argued he doesn’t have to go after Donald Trump directly.

"I don't have any voters begging me to attack anyone,'' Rubio said on TODAY Wednesday, describing it as a “media narrative.”

"I'm not in this race to attack any Republican. I didn't run for office to tear up other Republicans."

Rubio has kept a notably low profile on front-runner Trump, instead throwing all his fire at Ted Cruz. But what Rubio didn't say: His super PAC has already started attacking Trump. So Rubio may just sit back and let others do the work.
