NV Dems Statement on Marco Rubio’s Visit to Las Vegas

Las Vegas, NVNevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement on Republican Presidential candidate Marco Rubio campaigning in Las Vegas today:

“What Nevadans won’t hear today from Marco Rubio is the fact that he’s completely out of touch with the struggles Nevada families face every day to put food on the table.  Rubio is so clueless on the issues that matter to working families that he not only voted against increasing the minimum wage, he called it ‘silly’ and a ‘waste of time.’

“While Democrats are fighting to increase the minimum wage and ensure everyone has a fair shot at success, not just the wealthy, Republicans like Marco Rubio support reckless budget cuts, gutting Medicare and Social Security, and increasing tax cuts for millionaires and corporations.  Nevadans will hear a lot of rhetoric at Marco Rubio’s book tour stop today; but they should be skeptical of what they hear because when it comes to his record, you can’t judge Marco Rubio by his cover, and Nevadans certainly can’t trust him to fight for us.”
