West Charlotte County Republican Club

Marco Rubio agreed to the terms of the debate (a 15 minute speech by each candidate and 5 questions with 2 minutes to speak each on each question) ahead of time by months.

The DAY BEFORE, Rubio called and said he had an early flight out the next day and asked if he could go first. The club worked with him as much as they could while being fair.

Then, the DAY OF, Rubio only wanted to have his speech and quickly answer questions without the possible back and forth 2 minute answers together.

DURING THE MEETING (after this video), Rubio was on the phone with Former Senator Bob Smith discussing the possible "terms" of the "debate" as the dinner already started and people have been waiting.

End result. Rubio let down a large room that wanted to see a debate that he agreed to. Sen. Smith went on to speak by himself.

Scared to debate Sen. Bob Smith?

A hypocrite for not wanting to debate other candidates after trying to call Governor Crist out for not debating?

You decide.
