SANFORD, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is in Sanford tonight for a campaign rally as the Republican candidate continues to vie for the party's nomination during the primary season.
Sen. Rubio brought an optimistic message to an airport hanger. He said the country has a chance to create a new American century. He also criticized President Barack Obama’s policies and told supporters that Hillary Clinton would bring much of the same.
Rubio never mentioned Donald Trump by name but told people the conservative movement and the Republican Party should not be about anger and fear, adding that he would unite and grow the party. “If we nominate someone a third of the party hates, we lose,” he said.
Rubio said as president, he would get rid of "Obamacare" and the nuclear deal with Iran. He claimed the military had been weakened under President Obama and said he would strengthen the armed forces and increase its size. He also addressed student loan debt. "We are going to leave for your children what Americans always leave their children: the single greatest nation in the history of all mankind."
