WICHITA, Kansas – Republican Presidential candidate Marco Rubio talked exclusively to KSN News before a rally in Wichita Friday at Jabara Airport. .
View the complete KSN interview with Marco Rubio below.
Rubio talked about his campaign. He also addressed the Republican front-runner in the race and last night’s debate in Michigan.
“It is ugly because Donald Trump is the most vulgar person that has ever ran for president. He has spent the last year offending and making personal attacks against the disabled, against women, against minorities and everyone on that stage. I said at the beginning of that debate last night, let’s have a policy debate. Donald Trump doesn’t have any policies.”
It is policy, that KSN is interested in and particularly his plans for energy.
Many communities in Kansas have seen a big drop in income with the price of oil dropping. KSN asked Rubio how he would reverse that as president.
“We need to do everything we can until that price recovers to insure that we’re not doing anything government wise that hurting them.”
Specifically, the senator is calling for reducing regulations on oil and gas exploration.
“But, I am talking about doing things like there’s a lot of environmental protections that are in place that require all sorts of redundancies to be put on these operations which are costs associated with production.”
In a news release sent out after the rally, Rubio said 27 Kansas officials are supporting him.
