Marco Rubio will have to explain immigration bill: Paul

During an interview with CNN’s State of the Union Jake Tapper Sunday, Republican Senator and Presidential candidate Rand Paul told the host that rival Marco Rubio would have to explain the immigration bill he once supported.

Marco Rubio donkeyhotey photoTAPPER: Senator Chuck Schumer told CNN this week that Senator Marco Rubio’s fingerprints are all over the gang of eight immigration bill and the pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

Obviously, Senator Rubio has said — he has backed off that — that bill. Do you think this is going to be, ultimately, a big problem for Senator Rubio, who is rising in the polls a bit?

PAUL: Yes. And I think it — he was a co-author of the bill. It was a Rubio bill. It was a Rubio-Schumer bill. So, he does have to explain it.

I think it will be a big part of things. But it seems to have been tamped down because so much of the attention has been towards one candidate. And I think we need to sort of start distributing the argument some, so we can know about all of the candidates and where they stand.
