Senator Marco Rubio dropped to address charges levied by conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly — a supporter of Donald Trump.
She recently published a report that accused Rubio of lying and deceiving conservatives on immigration issues.
“I haven’t read it,” Rubio told me. “She’s entitled to her opinion. These things happen in elections — it’s not a big deal.”
Schlafly’s indepth report titled, “Rubio Record on Immigration,” accused him of betraying conservative allies, Breitbart News reported.
“Rubio’s entire career rests on the fact that no one will question his syrupy scripted bites and homeroom-president style rehearsed speeches,” she wrote.
The senator told me he is as conservative as anyone else running in the race.
“It’s unfortunate when conservatives decide to attack others,” he said. “I respect Phyllis very much. I was disappointed she would write that. At the end of the day, I am proud of my record.”
