Marco Rubio Defends Missing Senate Votes While Running For President


NBC's Matt Lauer grills Marco Rubio on why he is missing so many Senate votes while running for president, gun control, and Donald Trump.

MATT LAUER: 29% of the time over the past year, you were not in attendance, when votes were taken in the Senate... Are you placing your own personal ambitions ahead of your responsibilities to your constituents.

MARCO RUBIO: No, in fact, the majority of the job of a Senator is not walking onto the Senate floor and pulling the level on non-controversial issues, and saying which way you'll vote.
