Mark Levin Reveals the Real Reason Marco Rubio Stiffed Grassroots Conservative Conference

Marco Rubio
  • “Marco Rubio did not have the guts to talk to a room full of conservatives.”

  • “I am troubled by his constantly changing positions on immigration and I think they’re totally dishonest at this point.”

  • “If it had been a broadcast interview on Univision with Jorge Ramos, Marco Rubio would have never skipped out.”

Thursday night,  Conservative Review hosted its inaugural “Conservative Conference,” featuring Ted Cruz , Ben Carson, Michelle Malkin, Dan Bongino, Sean Hannity, Louie Gohmert , and other leading conservatives in South Carolina.

One of the confirmed speakers at the event, attended by an estimated crowd of over 6,000,  was pro-amnesty establishment candidate Marco Rubio , but five minutes before, he cancelled, saying “his schedule was just too hectic,” according to Levin.

Levin said that instead, Rubio requested that his surrogates, Senator Tim Scott and/or Congressman Trey Gowdy , be allowed at the last minute to speak in his place. But since Jeb Bush, who could not attend because of a scheduling conflict, had asked to have someone represent him and had his request declined by Conservative Review, Levin said that Rubio’s request was also denied.

“I don’t have anything personal against Marco Rubio,” Levin explained, pointing out that he was a very early supporter of Rubio’s during his 2010 Senate race against Charlie Crist in Florida. “I am troubled by his constantly changing positions on immigration and I think they’re totally dishonest at this point.”

Calling immigration a “primary issue among primary issues,” Levin said that “if a candidate running for president can’t be crystal clear about their position after running for president for 6-8 months and then a senator for many years, then I can’t trust that person on immigration.”

“And I think that’s the problem. I think that’s why Rubio didn’t come to the convention because he knows he’s been squirrelly, weasely, quite frankly, dissembling on immigration. Now, I can assure you — I will bet you — that if rather than attending a convention of thousands and thousands of conservative activists, if it had been a broadcast interview on Univision with Jorge Ramos, Marco Rubio would have never skipped out.”
