New research from American Bridge shows that Marco Rubio didn’t show up for work on behalf of Florida taxpayers EVERY YEAR he was in the Senate, not just the year in which he ran for president and lost 66 of Florida’s 67 counties to Donald Trump.
Marco Rubio’s lack of interest in doing his job extends back to his earliest days as a politician — since 2000 when he missed one-third of his committee hearings in the state legislature, to 2002 where he skipped nearly half of the Florida House’s 9/11 Committee meetings, to when he missed 30% of the classes he taught as a part-time professor at FIU, to his current absenteeism in the Senate that is the worst vote attendance record from a Florida senator in nearly 50 years.
Rubio has always failed to show up for work on behalf of Floridians:
Missed committee hearings (total across all committees)
Missed voting record (Worst compared to other senators)
