Republican Univision Debate: Fear, Not Rubio, the Driving Factor
Five Republican candidates -- including Mitt Romney, Jon Huntsman, and Rick Perry -- have pulled out of a Univision debate in January. Why? Allegedly it is because of a comment the head of the blockbuster Spanish-language channel made to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio's people while attempting to blackmail the senator into participating in an interview.
Romney and Huntsman have nothing to lose. Neither candidate -- both of whom are Mormons -- is particularly immigrant-friendly (though neirther is horribly hostile either.)
