Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz must stop trashing each other and begin a nonstop assault on Donald Trump if either hopes to capture the Republican presidential nomination, Doug Sachtleben, a spokesman for the conservative political advocacy group Club for Growth, tells Newsmax TV.

"At this point, if [they] continue to battle at each other, and we'll see Thursday night when they debate in Houston … then you're really fighting to be first loser at that point," Sachtleben said Wednesday to J.D. Hayworth on Newsmax Prime.

"Both of those guys are going to have to do what you know from political campaign experience: you go after the front-runner. And if you're the front-runner, you expect to be in the sights."

"They're going to have to show some of that to show that they're the one that should take him on head-to-head."

Trump, the GOP presidential front-runner, clobbered the senators from Florida and Texas in Tuesday's Nevada caucuses, scoring a whopping 46 percent of the vote to Rubio's 24 percent and Cruz's 21 percent. And Trump is expected to win big in next week's Super Tuesday primary contests.

Club for Growth has been warring with Trump for months and has been running anti-Trump TV ads in several states.

In the latest, the group's super PAC is shelling out $1 million in Oklahoma and Arkansas to air spots that state: "Trump wants us to think that he's 'Mr. Tell It Like It Is.' But he has a record, and it's very liberal. He's really just playing us for chumps."

Those ads will continue throughout the campaign, according to Sachtleben.
