Marco Rubio on Super Tuesday: Donald Trump a "con artist"

March 1, 2016
Despite attacking Donald Trump for the last week, Marco Rubio won just one Super Tuesday state -- Minnesota. He vowed to fight on to Florida in two weeks and continued his attack on Trump as a "con artist." "Just five days ago we began to unmask the true nature of the frontrunner in this race," Rubio said. "Five days ago, we began to explain to the American people that Donald Trump is a con artist. And in just five days we have seen the impact it is having all across the country. We are seeing in state after state, he loves to talk about polls, we are seeing in state after state his numbers are starting to come down, our numbers going up. And two weeks from tonight, right here in Florida, we are going to send a message loud and clear. We are going to send a message that the party of Lincoln and Reagan and the presidency of the United States will never be held by a con artist."
