Marco Rubio Goes on Anti-Gambling and Anti-Prostitution Tirade While in Nevada

US Presidential candidate Republican Senator Marco Rubio is in Nevada for the upcoming caucus, a place he probably wishes he could avoid. 

Rubio is anti-gambling and anti-prostitution.  Both "sin" industries are perfectly legal in the Silver State.

“I’m anti-prostitution,” he said according to the Wall Street Journal’s Reid Epstein, but said it was up to the state of Nevada to decide the issue for themselves.  “I’m not talking about federalizing that issue. I want to shrink the government, not grow it,” Rubio said. “Suffice it to say, I wish Nevada would make it illegal, but that’s their decision to make. I don’t agree with it.”

He also took at shot at gambling while there.

“I’m very concerned about expanding gaming online … what I don’t want to see is internet casinos, because I have seen gambling addiction ruin families, I have seen gambling expansion ruin people’s lives,” Rubio said.
