Parkland Survivor Grills Rubio Over NRA Money: ‘In the Name of 17 People’ You Can’t Decline Funds?

A survivor of the Parkland, FL school shooting got into an intense clash with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) during Wednesday night’s CNN Town Hall.

Cameron Kasky, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, put the question directly to Rubio.

“Senator Rubio, can you tell me right now that you will not accept a single donation from the NRA in the future?” Kasky said.

Rubio replied, “I can tell you that people buy into my agenda. And I do support the second amendment.”

Kasky interjected.

“So right now in the name of 17 people, you cannot ask the NRA to keep their money out of your campaign?” He said.

“I will always accept the help of anyone who agrees with my agenda,” Rubio said.

“Okay, so I knew that was gonna happen,” Kasky said. “NRA, please just keep the money out of Rubio, okay?”
