    Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio accused his rival Ted Cruz on Tuesday of spreading a false news story suggesting Rubio was about to drop out.

    "It ain't true," Rubio said on Fox News Radio. "It is a lie. It looks like Ted Cruz's campaign is putting out emails in places like Hawaii, telling people about it."

    Politico reported Tuesday that Cruz's surrogates in Hawaii had recently sent out an email titled: "WASTED VOTE."

    "According to multiple news sources, Marco Rubio's advisers are telling him to drop out of the presidential race before losing his home state of Florida in a few days time," the reported email said.

    {snip}
    Rubio spokesman Joe Pounder was even more forceful than the Florida senator. In a statement, Pounder said:

    Senator Cruz is up to his dirty tricks again spreading false rumors and lies. We won't allow him to do to Marco Rubio in Florida what he did to Ben Carson in Iowa. Floridians and voters across the country will reject Senator Cruz's campaign of disgusting tactics because they know a vote for Cruz is a vote for Donald Trump.

    A Rubio campaign source told Business Insider that his team was also aware of "numerous" Cruz operatives in Hawaii who were allegedly telling voters that Rubio was going to drop out soon. Hawaii's Republican caucuses are on Tuesday.

    I've been thinking since Iowa that Cruz's Campaign Manager Jeff Roe will become Cruz's liability. Back door tricks, dirty plays that can't be traced to him. But it happens all around him way before heading Cruz's team.

    At the end of the day, it reflects the level of comfort a candidate would have with these side activities versus winning an election. Does the End justifies the Mean ?

    Poi is in that group of foods that I can't believe was even an acquired taste. But I guess if one is starving for calories... o_O

    They obviously didn't send me that email. The only ads I have seen out here are for Rubio. That and a bunch of fools standing along Fort Weaver Rd with Bernie signs. Just to add insult to injury HI can't even caucus correctly. Its more like a primary with only 2 hours to vote.

    Hmmm...FNC is reporting on this now...Relatively speaking, Cruz would seem to have dirtier staffers and volunteers than the other campaigns... o_O

    But Rubio is about to get out the race.

    8 days from now, after losing his own state.

    I wouldn't put it past Rubio to do this to himself in order to elicit sympathy votes.
