Pro-amnesty presidential candidate Marco Rubio was invited to speak at the inaugural Conservative Review “Conservative Conference” on Thursday night, along with the other GOP candidates.
Rubio confirmed and accepted a speaking engagement for the event, an extremely well-attended get together of conservatives in South Carolina emceed by the great conservative speaker and writer, Michelle Malkin.
Ted Cruz and Dr. Ben Carson, who did show up and give impassioned speeches along with top conservatives like Congressmen Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Jeff Duncan (R-SC), and also Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), Sean Hannity and Mark Levin, the constitutional scholar, best-selling author and talk show host who also acts as editor-in-chief at Conservative Review.
However, with the South Carolina primary less than 48 hours away, the amnesty-supporting Marco Rubio no-showed the event.
At the beginning of Mark Levin’s speech he asked the huge audience if anyone had seen Marco Rubio, then towards the end of the night, Michelle Malkin announced that Rubio had informed the event that he “tried to make it, but was unable to.”
Marco Rubio is still under fire from those concerned about his abysmal attendance record — for not showing up to work.
Certainly, this ill-timed and rude move by Rubio, a real slap in the face to the grassroots in South Carolina, isn’t going to alleviate those concerns.
