Mark Levin: ‘Pretty Damn Rude’ for Marco Rubio to Bail on Conservative Convention… ‘Maybe He Had a Meeting with La Raza’
GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA— Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was a no show here at the 2016 Conservative Review convention in Greenville, South Carolina. And it appears that the organizers of the convention had no idea that he was going to bail out on the conference at the last minute.
Mark Levin, a prominent conservative author and Conservative Review’s editor-in-chief, expressed his disappointment in the Republican nominee for President in a press conference following the convention, which was attended by thousands of Republican voters.
A reporter asked Levin, “What do you make of Marco Rubio not being on the schedule?”
“This is a conservative convention. First he said he was coming. Then he didn’t come. So the voters can draw their own conclusions from that,” he answered.
“I have nothing against Tim Scott and Trey Gowdy, but this is the conservative convention, and we had some presidential candidates show up,” he said of Carson and Cruz, adding “and their guy [Rubio] bailed out.”
Levin speculated: “Maybe he had a meeting with the Ripon society or something. Or LULAC [League of United Latin American Citizens], or La Raza.”
“It was pretty damn rude of Rubio, quite frankly. It is up to him to do what he wants to do, but … we had several thousand people to hear what he wanted to say,” Levin concluded.
