    As he prepares to head into the third republican debate tonight, republican Presidential candidate Marco Rubio has received some ill-timed news: conservative leaning Florida newspaper the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, which once endorsed him for Senate, is now calling on him to resign. And in so doing, the paper has handed Rubio’s rivals the ultimate talking point.

    From the start, Donald Trump has been harping on the fact that Marco Rubio has routinely skipped out on votes in the Senate and never seemed to take the office seriously, even as he now aspires for higher office. It appears Trump’s strategy has worked, as the Sun-Sentinel is now calling on Rubio to resign his position from the Senate for that same reason.

    Some observers expect Marco Rubio to have a strong shot at the 2016 republican nomination once the dust of a dozen-plus candidates settles. But if that’s the case, he’ll now have to overcome this potentially embarrassing obstacle. And the timing means that Rubio’s poor Senate record is sure to be a front and center topic of conversation tonight; even if the moderators don’t bring it up, his republican rivals will – repeatedly.
