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


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.
