|Senator Marco Rubio|
SIOUX CITY, Iowa — Florida Sen. Marco swung at Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in Iowa on Saturday morning for running a "very deceitful campaign" ahead of the first-in-the-nation caucuses.
Rubio told the crowd he would unite the warring factions of the Republican Party and sought to strike a contrast between himself and Cruz.
"Look, this is the last minute of the campaign, this is where desperation kicks in," Rubio told the crowd gathered in northwestern Iowa. "Ted Cruz has been my friend and is. He's decided to run a very deceitful campaign at the end. Some of the things he's saying, people see through that."A couple of things don't ring true.

And, of course, if Cruz is his friend, Rubio hasn't come to Cruz's defense in telling Donald Trump that he is in the Senate and he likes Cruz.
The whole "friend" thing seems to have gone up in smoke for both Rubio and Jeb Bush who used to be best buddies but now are attacking each other. One wonders if they know how to be friends.
Second, Rubio will unite the party saying this sort of thing about the guy who is currently in second place? Hmm. It will be interesting to see how he takes on the guy in first place.
