    Republican presidential candidate, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. speaks during a town hall meeting at the Saint Anselm Institute of Politics in Manchester, N.H., Thursday Feb. 4, 2016.

     Marco Rubio’s campaign is firing back at Ted Cruz over a new website that includes a Photoshopped image of the Florida senator appearing to shake the hand of President Obama, NBC News reported.

    "This is not Marco Rubio. This person — we don't know who that is — but they photoshopped Marco's face onto somebody else. This is how phony and how deceitful the Cruz campaign has become," Todd Harris, messaging strategist for Rubio, told a gaggle of reporters Thursday.

    The website,, says it is "Paid for by Cruz for President," and it depicts Rubio's record on immigration, the Environmental Protection Agency, sugar subsidies and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. It also labels Rubio "The Republican Obama."
