I guess Donald Trump is no longer a counter-puncher. I haven’t heard Marco Rubio going after Trump in a long time. In fact, during the last debate Rubio said he wouldn’t criticize any Republican candidate and that he would only go after Hillary Clinton.
As far as Trump knowing Florida better than Rubio, Trump knows about the ultra-rich in Palm Beach who visit Mar-a-Lago, and he certainly knows about the country-club elites at the Doral. However, Rubio was born in Florida to Cuban immigrant parents. He went to high school in Miami.
Rubio went to college and law school in Florida and served in the state Legislature.
Rubio likely knows more about Florida and the average people who live here than Trump will ever know. And, Rubio can speak to the community in English and Spanish.
