FDP Statement on Tonight’s U.S. Senate Debate

Posted

Tonight, following the second U.S. Senate debate, FDP Chair Allison Tant released the following statement:

“At tonight’s debate, Floridans again saw a clear contrast between a candidate who will fight for them and candidate who is only fighting for himself. Patrick Murphy is committed to protecting the environment, growing our economy from the middle out, fighting for our seniors, working together toward community safety, and improving quality of life for working Americans.

“Marco Rubio's attempt to laugh off his support of Donald Trump fell flat with Floridians concerned about just how dangerous a Trump presidency would be. Rubio offered no explanation for why he has the worst voting record of any Florida Senator in nearly 50 years and he again failed to unequivocally rule out abandoning his job for another presidential run.

“Floridians deserve better than a no-show Senator with one foot out of the door.”
