Marco Rubio joined Ted Cruz in a two-front war against Donald Trump in the February 25 GOP debate, according to a Bloomberg analysis by Adam Tiouririne of Logos.
“Cruz mentioned Trump four times more than even ‘America,’ combining with Rubio to name-check the front-runner 79 times,” writes Tiouririne, a Logos advisor and Bloomberg contributor.
Those nearly 80 mentions marked a major uptick compared to previous debates. The analysis also shows how Rubio and Cruz focused their attacks on competence and electability, respectively.
