Spanish-language ad blasts Marco Rubio as untrustworthy



American Bridge 21st Century will launch a Facebook ad against Marco Rubio in key Hispanic areas, casting the senator as untrustworthy and not just because he broke a promise not to seek re-election.

The Spanish-language ad will run over the weekend in Miami, Tampa and Orlando, the liberal super PAC said.

English transcript below:

Anchor: Senator Rubio has changed his mind and announced he will seek re-election.

He’s running again for the senate seat he vacated when he ran for president.

Reporter: The US presidential debates have just shown us how far the candidates can fall.

Trump said his hands are not small like his rival Marco Rubio said.

In the past few days, he spoke about what they say about men with small hands.

Anchor: I think it was something shameful.

They spent the majority of the time attacking each other stupidly.

They didn’t speak about their platforms.

Anchor: The debts and finances of Senator Marco Rubio were analyzed by the New York Times.

He used a Republican Party credit card to pay

For a pavement project in his home and a trip for a family reunion.

Anchor: Things are not going well for Senator Marco Rubio

Now that an important Florida newspaper is asking him to resign.

An editorial from the Sun Sentinel reads that Rubio

Has missed more senate votes this year than any other senator.

And he should do Florida a favor and concentrate on his work as a legislator.

Reporter: Marco! About the bill on refugees for next week in the senate…

Marco Rubio: We are not taking any questions right now.

Reporter: He did not accept questions from the press.

Dolores Huerta: Marco Rubio: Even though he speaks beautiful Spanish and is young and all that

He has said he’s against raising the minimum wage.

And so with people like that, in reality we cannot trust them.
