Reports Of Rubio Camp Calling Voters, Telling Them Jeb Suspended Campaign BEFORE SC Vote – CBSN

In this video report from CBSN before the South Carolina results came in, the reporter says that they have been hearing allegations that the Marco Rubio campaign was calling voters to tell them Jeb had suspended his campaign and to vote for Rubio instead.

The reporter asks Lindsey Graham to comment on the allegations in an interview before results came in.

Watch below:

I haven’t seen these allegations anywhere else, so it’d be interesting to see what substantive evidence CBSN might have for these accusations.

If it’s true, which is a big if, it would be incredible hypocritical for the Rubio campaign to have done this after they railed on Cruz for what happened in Iowa.

UPDATE:

Apparently the accusations are from South Carolina State Senator Katrina Shealy:

Notice she says ignore the “calls.”

UPDATE:

The Jeb Bush campaign is also accusing the Marco Rubio camp of dirty tricks:

This was in response to this tweet:

A lot of accusations flying around.

Trump’s Only Retweet After The GOP Debate Just Happened To Be A Nazi Supporter!

    What is it with Cubans?

    Cruz does it to Carson, Rubio does it to Jeb!.

    Come on, Sooper. You’re better than this.

    Rubio is a liar who will say anything to become President. Just like he was willing to say anything to become a Senator.

  • Interesting. However, I doubt whether any news station will give this anywhere near the coverage that the lie about Cruz’s staffers doing something similar in Iowa got – and they were merely repeating what CNN was broadcasting at the time.

    Rubio is a fraud on immigration and will pass amnesty if made President, and he is a complete beta. He cant win a single state. It took every major political figure in South Carolina endorsing him and everyone piling lies on Cruz, for Marco to squeeze into 2nd by a .1% . He is owned by the establishment because he isnt a leader. He needs to be told what to do.

    Rubio is the status quo. If you like the GOP and government as it is, vote for Marco.

    Im afraid Rubio is STILL better than Trump.

    Trump is a pathological liar and spoiled child who believes in punishing anyone who doesnt kiss his ring. If given the power to use the government for his narcissistic preening and crony capitalist schemes, it will end in a disaster that makes the Obama era seem like good times.

    Not only because he will hurt the all possible aspects of the country with his douchebaggery, but he will destroy what little credibility the GOP has left, and totally discredit capitalism as corrupt. The next Bernie Sanders will look more like Obama and after Trump burns the Constitution to ashes, the left will pounce to destroy any smoldering embers remaining of the United States created by our founders.

    Trump is the ugly fat chick left at the bar at 2:15 am, you leave with to spite your ex-girlfriend. You think you are getting some sort of payback but all you are really getting is a case of herpes, a weird rash, and your wallet stolen.

    Yeah, i know people are pissed. They should be, government is corrupt, but making a stupid decision in anger doesnt fix anything……and it can make things whole lot worse.

    Just imagine if the nasty Trump herpes you got comes with a side of pregnant, nasty Trump, bar skank Supreme Court Justice.

    Bottom line here—

    Nominate Trump, and Hillary becomes President.

  • He’s not saying it’s true. He’s saying “if” and that was a big “if”. I’m not sure it’s a bad thing to report on allegations that are visible at the level of a cable channel, but then again, I’m for an equal standard of scrutiny of all candidates.

  • Uhm, Cruz didn’t do anything to Carson. Carson did it to himself. Please don’t spread lies around any longer, ok?
