During one of his senatorial re-election campaign rallies in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Senator Rubio repeated his concerns about how important it was for Republicans to retain control of the U.S. Senate.
According to Rubio, Florida is a “tipping point” state that could, would ultimately decide the balance of power in the Senate.
With Rubio and others all-but conceding defeat in the presidential race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the focus of concern for the GOP continues to be the United States Supreme Court and the potential justices that would be nominated under a Clinton presidency.
The balance of the court is at stake, and all of our freedoms and all of our liberties.-Sen. Marco Rubio
Rubio told attendees that during the last presidential debate, Clinton spoke of the Supreme Court “as if it was an extra legislative body, a group of supervisors, that were in charge of making policy,” and not a court that was solely tasked to “ apply and interpret the Constitution.”
Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), who along with Florida Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera, flanked Rubio at the event, echoed the SCOTUS concerns.
Regardless of what happens at the top of the ticket, the senate majority is going to be asked to confirm a whole new slate of Supreme Court Justices that will have a 40-year impact-that’s a generational impact on this country.
Gardner added that Republicans“did not have a margin of error in the Senate,” adding that if Clinton wins, “a generational damage, if not permanent damage to this country,” would occur.
If God forbid she were to win, we are going to have some real bad nominees.-Sen. Marco Rubio
Democrats are hoping that Donald Trump’s lagging poll numbers will be enough for them to overtake Rubio on election night.
Unfortunately for them, Rep. Patrick Murphy (D) has not shown the muster needed to be able to defeat someone like Rubio.
Rubio has been beating Murphy in just about every single public opinion poll that has been conducted.
