EXETER - At a packed rally at Exeter Town Hall Tuesday night, Florida Senator and Republican Presidential Candidate Marco Rubio poked fun at the results of the Iowa Caucus.
“Vote for me, because if I’m our nominee, we are going to beat Hillary Clinton, and it won’t be by the flip of a coin, I promise you that,” Rubio said.
Rubio kicked off the by introducing his wife and four kids, telling voters they’ll get to know them in the next eight days as they stay in New Hampshire.
After barely finishing narrowly behind Iowa Caucus winner Ted Cruz and Donald Trump for second place in Iowa, Rubio didn’t mention names of any of his Republican opponents but vows to strengthen and grow the conservative movement.
“By taking our principles to people that have not voted for us in the past and convincing them as I know we can, and I know we will, that our approach is better than what Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton is offering,” Rubio said.
More than 700 voters young and old pack the room; some were undecided, others are strong Rubio supporters.
“This is my first time being able to vote and so I’m trying to see as many candidates as I can,” said Charlotte Dylan, a student at Phillips Exeter Academy.
“I think Rubio’s got a lot of charisma, a lot of people like him,” said Tim Bailey of Hampton.
Rubio had a lot of laughs with the crowd, but got serious when listing what he would do as President. He promises to defend the 2nd Amendment, cancel President Obama’s deal with Iran, strengthen the economy, and secure the borders, among much more.
“I am going to repeal every single one of Barack Obamas unconstitutional executive orders every single one of them,” Rubio said.
Rubio kicks off a full day of campaigning across the Granite State with a Town Hall in Bow at 8 a.m. Wednesday.
