Jewish Rubio Backer Mocks Trump’s Cheating Claim With ‘Minyan’ Quip

The Jewish co-chairman of Marco Rubio’s campaign in Florida mocked Donald Trump’s claim that Rubio’s “minions” were trying to rig the make-or-break primary in the Sunshine State.

“I don’t know about minions, but I do know about Minyans,” Adam Hasner, a former Florida state House Majority Leader, told Politico via text message.

Hasner was responding to Trump’s bizarre claim that Rubio was seeking to cheat in the early voting for Tuesday’s critical primary election.

The GOP frontrunner Tweeted the claim that Rubio had found an illegal way to tip the balance in the voting. He called for a police investigation, but offered no evidence to back up the claim.

Polls show Trump with a solid lead in Florida, where the winner of the vote will scoop all 99 delegates.

But some polls show Rubio leading among those voters who already cast ballots, suggesting to some insiders that Rubio still has a chance to pull off an upset.

Early voting is much more prevalent in Florida than other states, making Rubio’s potential advantage among those voters a potentially significant advantage.
