Alex Snitker, the Libertarian candidate in Florida’s 2010 Senate race, has just unveiled a video aimed at Republican Marco Rubio and those who refuse to let him take part in the debates.

The video, unveiled yesterday and titled “Why is Marco Rubio afraid of Alex Snitker?” shows Snitker speaking out about his participation in upcoming Senate debates. Watch it after the jump.

In an interview at a Tea Party rally Saturday, Snitker seemed confident that his inclusion in a debates would bode well for his campaign.

“The important things for the campaign right now are getting back in the news and debating,” he said, referring to the first debate between Rubio and opponents Kendrick Meek and Charlie Crist. “I watched the debate last night and let me tell you, I would have won, hands down.”

“Whether you area Rubio supporter, or a Crist supporter, or a Meek supporter, you should be able to accept, or be supportive of the fact, that I should be included in the debate,” he said. “The only thing in this race I’ve ever asked for is the equal opportunity to be able to speak.”

Correction: In an earlier version of this article, Snitker’s name was incorrectly spelled “Snitcker.”
