Still battling conservative opposition to immigration bill, Rubio pulls the Obama card



Another day, another Marco Rubio media blitz. He was on Fox again this morning defending the immigration bill he helped write. This afternoon the Florida Republican put out this video, a direct appeal to conservatives who oppose the legislation. To rally support he pulls the Obama card.

"Conservative Republicans should lead on this issue," Rubio says. "Because without conservatives at the table and in the fight, we're ceding this issue to President Obama and his allies in congress. And as the last four years have proven, that is never a good idea."
