Florida gubernatorial candidate Gwen Graham had the tables turned on her big time when she tries to score political points at the expense of Sen. Marco Rubio.
Graham, the daughter of former Florida Gov. Bob Graham, tried to shame Rubio over not answering his phone.
In a video, the former Democratic congresswoman is seen calling Rubio’s office to urge him to vote against the GOP’s Graham-Cassidy health care bill, but never gets a live person on the phone:
Senator @MarcoRubio, answer your phone.

When Tampa Bay Times’ Washington bureau chief Alex Leary broadcast the result, Graham got a Dikembe Mutombo-like slap down from Sen. Rubio communications director Olivia Perez-Cubas.
“No live answer bc staff was out helping over 10,000 people apply for FEMA assistance, not sitting behind desk waiting for a political stunt,” Perez-Cubas replied in a tweet.
Backing up her assertion, Perez-Cubas included several photographs of Rubio’s staff in action.

Rubio is a consistent target for Democrats and their far-left activist allies in Florida, with frequent campaigns to inundate his phone lines.

Protests are routinely held outside Rubios’s offices throughout the state, disrupting regular business for constituents. The left-wing antics have gotten so bad, landlords asked Rubio to vacate district offices in Tampa and Jacksonville this year.

Ten progressive activists were arrested after holding a sit-in at Rubio’s Orlando office and refusing to leave.
And who’s the party of obstruction?
Trump ticked off some NFL players last night and they fired back. Boo hoo, boys.
