Rubio Wins the Week in GOP Senate Race

U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio scored two big endorsements this week, plus the criticism of from one of those Democrat-leaning MSNBC talking heads, which kinda counts as an endorsement.

About 1:10 in the video above, Hardball host Chris Matthews takes Rubio to task for Tweeting about how the conflict in Iran might be different if protesters there had the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

This comes in the same week that Rubio scored the endorsement of an influential Florida congressman, Jeff Miller, plus a taste-making national Republican figure, Mike Huckabee.
