[brid video=”29767″ player=”2077″ title=”Rubio comms director Alex Conant slams CNN story “utter nonsense””]
Alex Conant, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s communication director, said the report of an internal strive before the Florida Republican primary is “100% false.”
He angrily confronted CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room.” He told Blitzer “that is fiction” and demanded to know how the report was published without contacting the campaign. Conant also urged CNN to “stop reading that sort of fiction on air.”
While the race appears to be tightening, Mr. Trump leads Sen. Rubio in the PPD average of Florida Republican primary polls by 16 points. The latest poll shows a closer 8-point race, but still a steep hill for the senator to climb.
