Rubio super PAC attacks Ted Cruz over 'Canadian' tax plan



Marco Rubio's super PAC released three new ads today, two attacking Ted Cruz, including this one that plays off talk about his eligibility.

"What’s Canadian about Ted Cruz?" a narrator says. "His tax plan. Cruz wants a value added tax, like they have in Canada and European socialist countries. "

Though the ad does not directly invoke the debate over Cruz's eligibility, the focus is remarkable given how Rubio's own status has been called into question by some.

Another ad portrays Rubio as the Republican Democrats fear most. The ad calls Rubio a "national security expert" and says he "outsmarted" Democrats on Obamacare, a claim that has been challenged.
