Marco Rubio missed Friday’s vote on the Omnibus bill.

It was a bill he stated he opposed and might even try to delay.

But he didn’t show up for the vote. 98 other Senators did. Including Ted Cruz, who returned from the campaign trail to be able to just say No.

Paul Ryan wanted a budget and lacking a budget, we got another Omnibus Bill stuffed with all sorts of things we needed to pass in order to find out what’s in it.

The final vote count was 166 Democrats and 150 Republicans in favor. The total vote was 316-113.

As the Republican presidential primary heats up, illegal immigration is again taking center stage.  While this is nothing new (as we know President Reagan attempted to address it in the ’80s, John McCain made it a priority in ’08, and on), the discussion has taken an interesting turn this election cycle.

Apparently, the games began early.

Yesterday, the New York Times reported that serious backers of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush are “seething” thanks to Senator Rubio’s ascension in the polls. So incensed is the Jeb fan club, that they’ve threatened to dump mega bucks into a scorched earth anti-Rubio campaign.

It has long been obvious that Jeb Bush doesn’t have what it takes in this presidential election cycle.
