Marco Rubio's first TV ad: 'What happened in Paris could happen here'

@PatriciaMazzei

Marco Rubio used his presidential campaign's first national TV ad to portray himself as tough on national security in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks.

"This is a civilizational struggle," Rubio says in the 30-second spot, set to air nationally Tuesday, according to his campaign.

So far, Rubio has relied on an allied super PAC, Conservative Solutions PAC, and on a dark money political nonprofit, Conservative Solutions Project, to promote his candidacy.

 

Rubio also talked foreign policy in a Fox News Sunday interview, in which he called for a ground force made up mostly of Sunni Arabs to fight ISIS and defended his 2013 decision to vote against U.S. airstrikes in Syria.
