(BREITBART) — The New Hampshire state chairman of the presidential campaign of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) admitted in a Tuesday interview with Breitbart News that he was violent with an anti-Rubio protester dressed like a robot at an election day event today.
Cliff Hurst, the New Hampshire state chairman of the official Rubio campaign, admitted he physically roughed up the protester in an interview with Breitbart News—but claimed the protester started it.
Hurst joined Rubio’s campaign from Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s, just hours before Walker dropped out of the presidential race in 2015.
“He was pushing me, almost pushed me over. I’m 76- years-old. And he went right against me and pushed me almost to the ground,” Hurst said.
