Marco Rubio, trailing third behind Cruz in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, must be hoping that scenic Vancouver can give him a push past the current frontrunners. The Florida senator just released an ad titled "Morning Again in America," which opens with three seconds of beautiful stock footage… not in America.
This isn't the first time one of the GOP candidates released an ad with stock footage from outside the US. Back in September, Jeb Bush's super PAC released a video about America which also used stock footage from overseas; Cornwall, England specifically.
