Ted Cruz tangles with Marco Rubio in Las Vegas presidential debate

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio put energy into making claims about Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's record during the Republican presidential debate in Las Vegas aired by CNN--and Cruz fired back.   At issue: Cruz's established positions on how to address immigrants living in the country without legal permission and his votes on defense spending and national security measures.
