MIAMI — U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, is hoping Sen. Marco Rubio‘s decision to stick with Donald Trump will swing the U.S. Senate race in Florida.

 

So Murphy, one of the speakers introducing Hillary Clinton at a rally this afternoon at the Kendall campus of Miami Dade College, hammered both Trump and Rubio in remarks about the environment.

 

“We’re not going to modernize our energy policies w Donald Trump’s racist bullying and Marco Rubio’s silence. We’re not going to protect our waterways with Donald Trump’s demonizing immigrants and Muslims. And we’re certainly not going to fight climate change with Donald Trump’s misogynistic attacks,” Murphy said.

 

“And where does Sen. Rubio stand?” Murphy continued. “When Donald Trump goes low, Marco Rubio is right there with him. Sen Rubio stands with Donald Trump and refuses to protect our environment. When presented with the overwhelming scientific evidence of the existence of climate change, Marco Rubio’s quote was ‘I’m not a scientist.’ Senator, you don’t need to be a scientist. Look out your window.”
