Donald Trump is the one blitzing TV airwaves, Marco Rubio is the one playing hard to get.

Retweeted by Ashley Parker#Duh But I did ask the campaign for comment. And it confirmed the existence of the app, but would not say anything else.@michaelriley5 The password would not be particularly useful, since we don’t have access to the app itself.Also, there is such thing as the “Food Poison Journal.” Cc: Anyone considering eating at @FIGandOLIVE_USA Salmonella PSA: Perhaps avoid @FIGandOLIVE_USA, which has now brought food poisoning to folks in both DC and LA. story, Hansel.
