Rush Leads Truth Squad Against Rubio, Says Cruz Is And Was Against Amnesty

RUSH LIMBAUGH: Marco Rubio was part of the Gang of Eight trying to secure amnesty and wishes he wasn’t. Ted Cruz never was and they’re trying to make it out like he was. And at the end of the day, when people go vote, people are going to remember of the two, it was Marco Rubio that was a member of the Gang of Eight and Ted Cruz that wasn’t.

Leading Conservatives Say GOP Right Turn Right Idea

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
