In new ad in Spanish, Rubio responds to Murphy attack


Marco Rubio's U.S. Senate campaign is airing a new TV ad in Spanish countering Democratic rival Patrick Murphy, who has been hitting the Republican incumbent on his opposition to abortion rights.

The new 30-second Rubio features a shot of the Murphy ad and then says "FALSE."

"Patrick Murphy is one of the most ineffective members of Congress," the ad begins. "He's lied about his experience. He hasn't worried about our issues. And now he lies about Marco Rubio, when Marco has been there for us.

"A national security expert. Working on education reform. Fighing for fewer taxes. And defending the cause of liberty," the narrator says.

Rubio then speaks straight to the camera: "I'm Marco Rubio, and I approve this message because you know me."
