WASHINGTON (AP) – Marco Rubio, speaking at a Super Tuesday rally at his hometown in Miami, is criticizing the night’s big winner among Republicans: Donald Trump.
Rubio said that over the last five days he has begun “to unmask the true nature” of Trump, whom he called a “con artist.”
He said his recent attacks on Trump have given his campaign momentum and said that Trump did not represent the legacy of the “party of Reagan.”
Trump has won several states on Tuesday: Georgia, Alabama, Massachusetts and Tennessee. Ted Cruz has captured Oklahoma and his home state of Texas.
Rubio has yet to win a state, but his upbeat speech was full of promises to continue fighting and vowing to win his home state of Florida later this month.
