Former Rep. Foley: Voters Saw Rubio's Waffling on Gang of Eight as 'Cowardice'


By    |   Friday, 18 Mar 2016 07:04 PM

Marco Rubio has no future in politics, especially after voters saw his waffling on the Gang of Eight bill he once co-sponsored as "cowardice," former Florida Rep. Mark Foley told Newsmax TV on Friday.

"He got into the Gang of Eight then backed up," Foley, 61, who served from 1995 to 2006, told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth. "People saw that as cowardice.

"If you're going to take on a tough position, stick with it. You know that in politics.

"You can't be a pro and then a con — and the voters aren't going to forgive you. Both sides become angry. I think for Marco, his future's dim.

"He's a bright, talented person," Foley added of the freshman Sunshine State senator. "He was running prematurely. He should have run for re-election.

"He probably would have been easily re-elected in Florida. But for now, I can't see a pathway forward.

"He may be a lobbyist," Foley said. "He may want to be one of those people he derided during the campaign, but I don't see a path for him."
