GOP candidate Marco Rubio held a rally in Oklahoma City just before Super Tuesday kicks off.

Rubio says he is going to repeatedly attack Donald Trump's character as someone "who's pulling the ultimate con job on the American people."

He didn't hold back. During an interview with 2 Works for You reporter Joe Henke prior to the campaign event, Rubio said Trump was a "con man" and a "failed business man."

And he had fun at Trump's expense during the rally in Oklahoma City. He read tweets about Rubio from Trump that are full of misspelled words.

Rubio says there's enough time to slow Trump before 11 states vote next week on Super Tuesday, including Oklahoma.

"That's why there's a sense of urgency about it. Because the Republican Party and the conservative movement could fall into the hands of someone who has basically conned a significant number of Americans into believing he's someone he's not," he told reporters.

He added: "This is a guy who says he stands for the working class. When in fact his entire business career he's been sticking it to working class Americans."
