Like his opponents, Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio, is actively campaigning around the Southeast ahead of what should be a pivotal Super Tuesday. Chief among that group of voting states is the so-called SEC primary — Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma and Virginia.
Rubio, however, tried to show the ACC some love while speaking in Atlanta on Monday. It’s safe to say the Florida senator probably angered a whole bunch of UGA fans in the process.
“They keep calling it the SEC primary. There’s some ACC schools in there. This is a Georgia Tech town, right?” Rubio said, according to the AJC’s Greg Bluestein.
This is the part where we remind you that the Bulldogs’ official Twitter handle was once “@WeRunThisState.”
Georgia Tech town, indeed.
Rubio in hot water: "They keep calling it the SEC primary. There’s some ACC schools in there. This is a Georgia Tech town, right?" #gapol
