One of the things that made Ronald Reagan a great president is that he understood that America is a nation like any other that has existed throughout human history. He knew it was founded on universal principles that were powerful, the dignity of all people, human rights, the rights of all to live to live in freedom and liberty and to choose their own path in life. He just didn't believe it, he acted on it. I think there's a sense in this country today that somehow our best days are behind us and that doesn't have to be true. Our greatest days lie ahead if we are willing to do what it takes now. Today I'm proud to announce my endorsement of Marco Rubio. Our country needs a new generation of leadership. I think when you see Marco Rubio debate skills you can see Republicans saying who do I want going up again potentially Hillary Clinton? The Democrats have the ultimate super PAC. It's called the mainstream media. You better be able to lead our country on the first day not six months from now not a year from now on the first day in office our president could very well confront a national security crisis. Rubio won. He was the only candidate I gave a solid A to.
