The Conservative Political Action Conference took place Thursday, and Florida Senator Marco Rubio's 'bigot' comment seemed to take center stage. The comment came during a discussion on same-sex marriage, and the New York Daily News shared the details on March 14.
During his time in front of the microphone, Rubio said that it doesn't make him a bigot to believe that states should be able to “define marriage in the traditional way.” Of course, given the company he was in at the CPAC gathering, he certainly had many in agreement with him.
As KPLR noted, Rubio went on to say that those who “preach” about “climate science” are the ones who are closed-minded, and he spoke about limited government and conservatism. Marco Rubio's “bigot” comment may not have caused shockwaves among the conservatives in attendance, but many across the nation see the comment as one that underscores his positioning and platform. Of course some see that as a positive, while many others do not.
Rubio is noted as an “up and comer” in the Republican party who has the potential to bring in the Latino vote, but there are others who certainly take issue with his stances. What did you think of Marco Rubio's “bigot” comment?
