(FOX NEWS) A Florida businessman seeking to replace Sen. Marco Rubio in the U.S. Senate is unapologetic about comments he made calling President Barack Obama “an animal.”
Carlos Beruff, a construction developer, made the remark during a speech to a Republican group last week when he said the president had hurt the country with his military policy.

The Huffington Post was the first to report the story on Sunday.
