Rep. Hardy Becomes Latest Rubio Backer Who Can't Name A Single Legislative Accomplishment


In an interview with MSNBC's Thomas Roberts on Wednesday morning, freshman Nevada congressman Crescent Hardy dodges a question about Marco Rubio's legislative accomplishments as a senator. This calls to mind the last time a Rubio supporter was sent to promote the candidate on television completely unprepared, when MSNBC host Joe Scarborough stumped former senator Rick Santorum with the same question.

"So from your time, in a year of being on the Hill," Roberts asked, "legislatively or as a senator that demonstrates to you something of presidential character."

Rubio placed second in Nevada's Republican presidential caucus the night before, but even when asked a follow-up question, the Nevada Congressman failed to name a single bill Rubio has passed in the Senate, instead talking about his frustrations with Donald Trump and the "plans" detailed on Marco Rubio's website.

"But is there one thing you can name over the past year that you can point to that you've seen first hand that he has done that demonstrates presidential character," Roberts follows up, "to get things done?"

"On the hill I have not seen that, he's been running for the presidential race most of this year."

Hardy notes that in the past Rubio has done things he disagrees with, but points to the "Gang of Eight" bill in 2013 as "a very good process," even though he notes he is glad the bill never passed.
