Conservative radio star Rush Limbaugh applauds him.

“Marco Rubio has had it, and it hasn’t taken long for Marco Rubio to have had it,” Limbaugh said on the air Tuesday. “Marco Rubio says, ‘What is this continuing resolution crap? I didn’t come in here to fund the government every two to three weeks, and $6 billion here and $6 billion there. What the hell is going on here?’” Limbaugh said he wishes Rubio would run for president.
