Hundreds Turn Out for Rubio Speech

presidential election is a year off,
candidates are criss-crossing the country
hoping to secure votes and caucus support.
One of the Republican candidates paid a
visit to Sun City last week (on Thursday,
October 8) as nearly 600 Sun City residents
and supporters turned out to hear what
United States Senator Marco Rubio, R-Fla.,
had to say.
Rubio told the packed house
at Mountain Shadows community center that
preserving the American dream would take
some new blood, and that the “politics of
the past” will not secure a safe future for
America and the generations to come.
He promised to repeal and replace President
Barak Obama’s Affordable Care Act, as well
as cancel a recently signed nuclear deal
with Iran. Rubio spoke for more than 30
minutes garnering frequent applause.
Rick Harrison, star of the History Channel’s
“Pawn Stars” and a local celebrity endorsed
Rubio prior to the start of the speech,
calling Rubio “the real deal.”
Nevada is an early voting state with
caucuses in February.
