Marco Rubio, the 3rd place winner of Iowa, decided to weigh in on the #CarsonGate controversy, where Senator Ted Cruz stole Carson votes (allegedly,) and sent out “Voter Violation” mailers (proven) in order to win the Iowa Caucuses.
The Carson campaign accused the Cruz team of spreading rumors that Mr. Carson was dropping out of the race.
“Obviously, we’ve all seen the reports of the rumors they spread about Ben Carson,” Mr. Rubio said. “Those weren’t accurate, and I thought it was unfair to Ben. And you know ultimately, I think it goes back to what I said before and that is a willingness to say or do anything, in this case spread a false rumor about Ben Carson.”
Calls grow for Senator Cruz to either rescind his Iowa victory and his delegates to be spread among Trump, Rubio, and Carson, or for a new election altogether.
