The Lightweight, the Deadweight and the Heavyweight. The Lightweight: Marco Rubio. He looks good on TV, but what's he ever done but push for amnesty. The Deadweight: Donald Trump. What's he ever done to advance our conservative cause. All he's done is give money to liberals and he's proud of it. And the Heavyweight: Ted Cruz. A champion for your conservative values.
