Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Thursday that Marco Rubio “was literally considered the next Ronald Reagan,” but his involvement with the Gang of Eight and flip-flopping on immigration “whittled” his political career “down to nothing.”
LIMBAUGH: It wasn’t that many years ago that Marco Rubio was considered the last great hope. What was he in the state Senate or something? He was running around and he had Conservatives in this state totally captivated. Rubio was literally considered the next Ronald Reagan, or potentially could be the next Ronald Reagan… So he runs for Senate, gets elected and it’s just amazing… it hit me again how remarkably easy it seems to be for us to take out people on our team… Marco Rubio’s political future is in the process of being whittled down to nothing… It predates the presidential campaign… Right there in the middle of it is the Gang of Eight.
