Rubio Heckled by Conservatives

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) "came face-to-face Friday with how his support for a bipartisan immigration deal has hurt his standing with the GOP's tea party wing, facing loud hecklers during a speech to a group of influential conservative activists," the Washington Post reports.

Rubio's speech "was punctuated repeatedly by calls of 'No amnesty!' from attendees scattered throughout the audience of about 1,000 people. Rubio did not acknowledge the shouts, but he ended his speech with an impassioned description of the promise that he said America offers immigrants such as his parents, who came from Cuba."
