"People buy into my agenda. I don't buy into theirs," says Rubio.
Presidential hopeful Sen. Mark Rubio found himself defending his support for Sheldon Adelson's Restoration of America's Wire Act shortly after it was re-introduced in the Senate this week (see previous report).
At a town hall meet in New Hampshire reporters pressed the candidate on his support for a bill widely believed to have been drafted on the orders of land casino mogul and major Republican donor Sheldon Adelson, but he denied that his support was associated with a bid to win Adelson's endorsement.
The Washington Post reports that the Florida senator has "...assiduously courted the billionaire casino mogul, who spent approximately $100 million on the 2012 campaign and could spend as much or more in 2016."
Responding to the questions, Rubio commented:
"People buy into my agenda. I don't buy into theirs. When I run for office, I tell people where I stand
