Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush start to take the gloves off

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN) - The budding tension between the two Floridians running for president escalated on Tuesday as Marco Rubio defended his Senate record amid new attacks by Jeb Bush.... Bush aides and allies have increasingly been highlighting Rubio's poor attendance for votes in Washington -- a tally that has also been fodder for another new Rubio agitator, Donald Trump.

"We are not going to fix a dysfunctional Washington, D.C., by electing a celebrity entertainer or D.C. senator who is either part of the problem or has proven incapable of fixing it," the former Florida governor wrote.

"I don't know about you, but this idea this idea that somehow voting isn't important, I mean what are they supposed to do? They should go to the committee hearings, they should vote," he said, lightly pounding his first on the podium at a Scott County GOP dinner.
