Truck taunting Rubio is on Palm Beach County roads

Allies of Democrat Patrick Murphy are doing what campaigns do this election season when his opponent, Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio keeps his distance from presidential nominee Donald Trump:

Send out a truck to taunt Rubio.

Rubio spoke Thursday morning at a closed-door event at Boca Raton Synagogue. Roughly 27.6 miles away, at the South Florida Fairgrounds near West Palm Beach, Trump was revving up a supportive crowd that — as usual — did not include Rubio, although he did renew his endorsement of Trump this week.

Murphy ally American Bridge, a Super PAC, sent a digital billboard truck to Rubio’s Boca Raton speech then headed to Trump’s rally to show how easy the drive could’ve been for the Senate contender.

Rubio spokeswoman Olivia Perez-Cubas said there was no reason to attend any of Trump’s four events in Florida this week, ending with the Fairgrounds rally.

She said, Rubio is “focused on his own campaign for reelection.”

No surprise, American Bridge sees it differently.

“Marco Rubio is a spineless politician, who is still endorsing Donald Trump even after the recent sexual assault comments that were made public,” said Jessica Mackler, president of American Bridge. “But why then is Rubio willing to hand over the nuclear codes to Donald Trump, but not be seen in public with him?”
