Steinhauser: Dolphins fan Rubio tells NH1 News he's pulling for the Patriots
NH1 News Political Director
MANCHESTER – Senator Marco Rubio says he’s pulling for the New England Patriots this weekend when they face off against the Denver Broncos in the AFC championship game.
But the Florida Republican and White House candidate says presidential politics and currying favor with Granite State primary voters has nothing to do with it.
Speaking one-on-one with NH1 News Thursday, Rubio said “if someone’s going to go to the Super Bowl it mine as well be someone from the AFC East. Plus if they win the Super Bowl that means the Patriots have an even lower draft pick. So that makes it even easier for the Dolphins.”
