“We need more job creators in the Senate, and Linda McMahon fits the bill,” Rubio said in the recording. “I know she’ll stand with me when we’re working toward tax cuts and lower spending because she knows that will help our middle class and small businesses. … Our families need Linda McMahon in Washington, and I need you to vote for Linda McMahon on Nov. 6.”

“Her opponent is a career politician who has been in Washington voting for higher taxes and more debt,” Rubio said. “His votes have nearly doubled our debt in six years. We can’t afford six more years of that.”
