Murphy continues to rail against Rubio for 'silently standing by' Trump



Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Patrick Murphy continued on Monday to pressure Republican incumbent Marco Rubio to drop his support for Donald Trump, after an 11-year-old video surfaced Friday that showed the Republican presidential nominee bragging about groping women by their genitals.

Rubio sent a tweet late Friday condemning Trump's recorded comments as "vulgar, egregious and impossible to justify," but he hasn't gone as far as other Republicans in withdrawing his endorsement of Trump.

In a morning call with reporters, Murphy said Rubio needs to do more to "stand up to Trump" instead of "silently standing by" while Trump "boasts about sexually assaulting women."
