The Pulse Exclusive – Rubio: “Make the 21st Century the American Century”


Continuing our “30 Seconds with the Candidates” series, we caught up with Sen. Marco Rubio in Iowa to ask why Iowans should caucus for him.  Rubio responded with an upbeat message on the future and where he’d like to take America if elected:

Iowans should caucus for me because I’m the only candidate talking about the 21st century being the American century.  We have an opportunity to have a country that’s not just great but greater than it’s ever been.  We have a specific policy plan on how to achieve that.  Working together we can make the 21st century the American century.  That’s why I’m running for President and that’s why I want people to caucus for me in Iowa.

It was a good answer covering broad ideals, but we’ll be interested to see more specifics of Rubio’s policy plan for America.  We’ll keep trying to catch up with the candidates in Iowa and get their thoughts on why they deserve your vote.
