Alleged Blackmail of Conservative Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) Leads Five GOP Candidates to Boycott Univision Debate

(By Madeleine Morgenstern, The Blaze) - Five Republican presidential candidates said they will boycott a proposed Univision-sponsored debate in January after allegations emerged that the Spanish-language network tried to blackmail Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio over a story about his brother-in-law.

GOP contenders Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Jon Huntsman and Michele Bachmann all said Tuesday they will not participate in the planned debate until the alleged ethical breach involving Rubio — widely thought to be on the short list for the vice presidential nomination — is resolved, the Miami Herald reported.
