Pete King slams Marco Rubio’s Wall Street trip

Rep. Pete King criticized Sen. Marco Rubio on Thursday for having “the balls” to raise money on Wall Street despite voting against a Superstorm Sandy relief bill.

“Being from New York we’re not supposed to be suckers,” King (R-N.Y.) told The New York Observer’s Politicker. “It’s bad enough that these guys voted against it, that’s inexcusable enough. But to have the balls to come in and say, ‘We screwed you now make us president?’”

POLITICO reported that Rubio met with GOP donors on Wall Street in recent weeks — adding more speculation that he’s preparing a 2016 run for the White House.

Rubio voted against Sandy relief (though another form of relief eventually passed), saying that it had too much political pork attached to it.

“Rubio and these other Republican candidates are coming to New York to raise money,” King told Politicker. “I don’t think any senator or congressman who voted against aid for Sandy should get one nickel from New York.”

King said that the Republican Party has been growing anti-Northeast.
