Rubio Blasts Gingrich TV Ad as "Inflammatory" and "Inaccurate"

Rubio's comments here, along with his statement yesterday that Mitt Romney is "no Charlie Crist" and a "conservative," have fueled some speculation that Rubio is really pulling for Romney while officially remaining neutral. That could be--there are plenty of pro-Romney folks in Rubio world. But Rubio takes a strong position against illegal immigration. And for Gingrich to call Romney "anti-immigrant" is to call Rubio "anti-immigrant" as well. Rubio was defending himself today as much as he was defending Romney. Yesterday, he was simply responding to Gingrich's claim that Romney is just another Charlie Crist. Romney endorsed Rubio before Gingrich did, so Rubio must have felt obliged to speak up.
