Statement on Tonight’s Senate Debate

Posted

Tonight, following the first Senate debate, FDP Chair Allison Tant gave the following statement: 

“Tonight’s debate offered Floridians a clear contrast between two distinct visions for Florida. Patrick Murphy understands that Florida is stronger when we stand together and work to solve our problems with commonsense solutions. Marco Rubio stood with Donald Trump despite not trusting him with nuclear weapons, gave an incoherent answer on climate change, and reiterated his opposition to a woman’s right to chose. Rubio failed to explain why he has the worst voting record of any Florida Senator in nearly 50 years and refused to unequivocally rule out abandoning his job to run for president — yet again. 

“Florida deserves better than a self-interested senator like Marco Rubio.”
