Since announcing his candidacy for the president last month, Florida senator Marco Rubio has surged in the polls for the Republican nomination. He's now tied with Wisconsin governor Scott Walker and trails former Florida governor Jeb Bush by two points in the Real Clear Politics average of polls. National Democrats are taking note in a new fundraising campaign that takes on the Miami Republican.
"Meet Florida senator Marco Rubio," says a new email from the Democratic National Committee. "He now opposes comprehensive immigration reform. He's against women's rights and called passing they Paycheck Fairness Act 'wasting time.' He refuses to believe that climate change science is real even though his hometown of Miami is one of the areas most affected by it." Check out an image of the graphic below:
"This is who Republicans want to be our next president," the email concludes. "Do you? No!" At the bottom of the email is a link to a fundraising campaign called "Stop the GOP."
