Democratic candidate for governor Gwen Graham on Friday sat down in front of a camera and proceeded to call Sen. Rubio’s office to urge him not to support the Graham-Cassidy health care bill.

No one picked up and she left a message. She then called his offices across Florida. Each time, a recorded voice was heard.

“Senator @marcorubio, answer your phone,” Graham said on twitter.

Rubio’s spokeswoman shot back, calling it a “stunt” and explaining that Rubio’s staff was helping people apply for FEMA assistance.
