Floridians Are Paying The Price For Marco Rubio’s Lack Of Leadership

1 min read

Where is Marco Rubio? 

The Senator’s last public event in Florida was two months ago. Since getting called out for failing to show up for his job in the Senate, Rubio has missed nine more committee hearings, including meetings on small business developmentseniors issues, and critical foreign policy discussions about Afghanistan. 

“When Floridians need strong leadership the most, Marco Rubio is once again nowhere to be found. Not only is he skipping out on his job in the Senate, he’s failing to show up in Florida to help keep people safe from COVID and get our state back to normal. Sadly this is what Floridians have come to expect from Rubio, who has shown us time and again that he’s more focused on advancing his own political career than doing the job he was elected to do,” said Florida Democratic Party spokesperson Grant Fox

Inaction and incompetence from Republican state leaders has exacerbated the recent COVID outbreak, causing mass school absences and hours-long waits for tests. Yet all Rubio has to offer are tweets denying a problem exists and spreading misinformation.

This isn’t the first time Rubio has abandoned Florida in a time of need. In August during the state’s deadliest outbreak of COVID, Rubio flew off to Iowa to chase another failed presidential campaign, dedicating more time to political fundraisers than helping address the ongoing public health crisis.

Florida Democrats believe in effective and efficient government that prioritizes quality education, affordable health care, and an economy in which anyone who works hard can succeed.

Most importantly, we believe that we are stronger together. We believe the fundamental American promise — that you can go as far as your own hard work will take you — should shine brightest in Florida.

That is why we champion the middle class and cherish the principle that all Floridians should have the opportunity to work hard and succeed. That is why we will never stop fighting for better public schools, because education is the surest path to a better life for millions.

From standing for affordable health care and better schools to fighting for civil rights and access to the ballot box, Florida Democrats are leading every day to move our state forward.
