Alex Pappas Political Reporter

Ahead of next week’s Republican presidential primary in Florida, Donald Trump is running a new television ad attacking the state’s senator [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore] as “corrupt.”

In a news release about the ad, Trump said: “Lightweight Senator Marco Rubio is a dishonest person. He has cheated with credit cards, and does favors for lobbyists. In my opinion, he is a total crook and I am doing the people of Florida a great favor by further exposing him.”

Rubio has repeatedly said he thinks he will win Florida. But a Monmouth University Poll released Monday shows Trump ahead by 8 points, winning 38 percent to Rubio’s 30 percent. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] has 17 percent and John Kasich has 10 percent.
