Jeb Bush PAC Attacks Marco Rubio in New Ad
New York Times – After months of threatening to run negative ads against Senator Marco Rubio, Right to Rise, the “super PAC” supporting Jeb Bush, is making good on its promise, going after the Florida senator’s attendance record in a new ad released on Tuesday.
Quick cuts of Washington scenery and still photography of Congress mash up with videos of luxury jets as the ad rifles off accusations that Mr. Rubio was fund-raising for his presidential campaign while Congress was meeting about the terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif. The final 10 seconds of the ad are simply the senator’s name in all capital letters in the center of a black screen, as small images of news footage of terrorist activities and attacks flicker sporadically around the wording, giving it a dark and accusatory tone. No image, or voice, of Mr. Bush is in the ad.
