Donald Trump is punching hard at "Lightweight Marco Rubio" in the epic battle for Florida, which Rubio concedes could kill his presidential campaign.

Trump's newest attack ad targets two Rubio friends who allegedly are along for the ride to the White House with the Florida despite past scandals.

"Keep lightweight Marco and his friends out of the White House," Trump said in a tweet that included the ad.

Another ad posted Wednesday calls Rubio "Another Dishonest Politician."
